I created this card for my father-in-law, who will turn 92 in a few days! I decided to combine two challenges into one card. Sometimes it's difficult to do a "guy" card, especially when you're a crafter, like me, who loves ribbons and "embellies". I think I was successful with this card, though. Anyway...he always appreciates my handcrafted cards no matter how they turn out!
The JUGS challenge #33 is to use red, white and blue...with the option of adding kraft. Well, kraft is always a good choice for a guy's card anyway, so I used that for my main panel then added the other colors as accents. I used a Diamond & Star Impressabilities on the panel of kraft, although it may be difficult to see in my photos.
The Stamp Simply #139 challenge is a sketch challenge by Jenn Buck. I stayed fairly close to her original sketch, but of course added my own touches. It's fun working from a sketch created by someone else. It really gives me a "head start" on my card.
