Love and Liberty

My creative time has continued into the evening hours since my husband and 17 year old son are camped out in the living room with The Force Awakens playing and the surround sound blaring. We all saw the movie when it was in the theater (my son actually saw it 4 times when it was in theaters!) so I'm good on watching it for a while ;)

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!
