Just Us Girls color challenge #33

Hello!
It's a color challenge over at  Just Us Girls this week.  Great colors this week for me because there is nothing I like better then inking up Kraft card stock with white ink!  It just gives any project  such a worn weathered look.  I thought it was perfect to give my card a very worn masculine look (nothing frilly).  I used two different stamp sets to write my sentiment (PTI's Spring time Doodles & Vintage Picnic) I thought "hero" was the  appropriate word and with the other words I was able to make it flow perfectly for my card.  It's the first word  that always comes to my mind when I think of past and present men and women who have served and are serving our country.  I hope you like it and thanks so much for stopping by!   Have a good one!

  12. Awesome card Kathryn. I too am a fan of kraft but have never thought to ink it up with white. It looks great and softens the kraft beautifully.
