Veteran's Day with Sketches By Carly

Happy Friday everyone! And Happy Veteran's Day to all of our Veteran's and active duty military members!  You are all appreciated!  ***So sorry for the delay in posting...Blogger messed up, I had it scheduled!***

Today is a new sketch day with Skeches by Carly.  This time we are sponsored by Bugaboo and I have had the pleasure of designing with their image called AKV Army - Flag USA.  I gotta tell ya I love this card.  The sketch was so much fun to work with and tweak to make the layout work for this fun image and my Veteran's Day theme.  I wish I could tell you who made all the fun papers on this card but I honestly do not recall.  For this soldiers uniform I Google'd ACU (the name of the type of uniform that Army soldiers wear right now), found a good photo and then printed the pattern on some cardstock.  I then ran the ACU'd  piece back through my computer to print the soldier image on.  I just cut out the helmet and jacket, adhered it to my base image and have somewhat of an authentic soldier for my card! Fun stuff, huh?

I know you want to play along so I've posted the sketch here on my blog so you can get started right away.  When ready you can head on over to Sketches by Carly to upload your card to InLinkz. I'm also entering this in the Blogger Challenge Veteran's Day Challenge. 

I know you guys want to see what the rest of the design team has made so I'll link you up.  Be sure to leave them all some love, k?



Please take the time, not just today, but everyday to thank a Veteran.  I can pretty much guarantee you that you will make their day!

Your card is fantastic! Love the paper choices. Thank you for thinking of the veterans today. As a child of an army veteran, I can assure you that they aren't thanked enough
Hugs,

What a wonderful card from you today. I love the twine "bomb" (or whatever it is called), that thing is so cool you have to tell me how to do that! You must be so proud to be a military mom (and wife too!) I know I am not American, but thank them for me for their service (after all, we are commrades in arms).
