Gingham or Plaid

That's the challenge this week on the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog. I am on a tear trying to create  OWH Any Hero cards. I need to have as many available as possible for our Annual Shrimp Boil a week from Saturday. Instead of singing for their supper, our guests are expected to write a thank you note to a service person for their supper.

With that thought in mind, all my challenge cards this week have been Patriotic themed. When I was choosing the right image, this one made me think of the Ticker Tape parades for heroes. The image is called Unwrapped and can be found at the Phindy's Place Store. I'd give you the specific link, but I'd rather you hunted for it, so you get a chance to see all of her great images. I've paper pieced his pjs, and colored the rest of the image with Copics.

The digital papers are from the kit by Clementine from My Grafico called Star Spangled Sketches. I used the sketch for this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches.
Off to get this entered, I have 5 more of these to put together.

Thanks for stopping by.
