LNS Challenge 118 Strength and Hope




When I was thinking about making a patriotic card for this week's LNS Challenge 118, I thought of using these butterflies in Real Red on the Night of Navy striped papers. I had planned to use a different sentiment, but I realized the sentiment from "Strength and Hope" was perfect for anyone serving in the military.
"Courage, unity, survivor, kindness, and strength" all are perfect descriptions for those in the Armed Services.

For all of you in the military or with someone you love in the military, the last words in the sentiment stamp, "thank you," don't begin to express my gratitude for your sacrifice.

My card is based on this week's sketch from Create with Connie and Mary. I just turned it on it's side to accommodate the sentiment better.

Happy Stamping!
 

I used the following Stampin' Up products to make this card:
 
Strength and Hope Stamp Set
Real Red and Night of Navy Classic Inks
Very Vanilla, Real Red, and Sahara Sand Card Stock
Regals Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack
Brights Brads
Basic Pearls
