BC176 Veteran's Day Tribute

This weeks Bloggers Challenge is Patriotic, in honor of Veterans Day. The process of creating is a fascinating one to me. Once I knew what the theme of the challenge was, I knew I would use one of my Artistic Outpost stamp sets, either Hero or She-roes. Both have wonderful stamps which fit the theme. I chose the Statue of Liberty from She-roes. I had the raised and split background in mind. That's when fate took over. I just received the Tim Holtz Holiday Paper Stack and therein was the perfect background for a patriotic card--a page of patriotic related words. "Life, Liberty, Old Glory, Red, White Blue, American Flag, etc." The final coincidence was when I was putting away some of the "stuff" from one of the moving boxes I found this chipboard star which was the perfect background for the focal image. I guess you can say that this card just came together.
