The current Freshly Made Sketches challenge ends Monday at noon PST so I wanted to play along with it before it closed. I grabbed an older set from SU called The Free and the Brave. My husband spent 20 yrs in the Navy and right now we have a lot of friends either retiring from the service or changing duty stations so I've got military on the mind, and with 4th of July a week away thoughts of freedom are also swimming through my head. I love the sentiment in this set, it can work for many different occasions.
I cut the white background out with the Lawn Fawn Snowy Backdrop, I love the stars in it, and then I trimmed the piece with a die from an MFT Blueprints set. The sentiment circle was diecut with MFT Zig Zag stitch circles and then popped up for dimension. I used retired SU DSP for the back circle and the strip across the middle.
Thanks for stopping by!
