Shout out to our amazing military!!

Today I am posting as a member of The Scrapbook Queen's Royal Challenge Design Team
We are hosting a monthly challenge. This challenge goes live on the 30th of each month. Come check out my inspiration on the 30th then head to The Scrapbooking Queen Royal Challenge to obtain a printable for our chance at a second entry to our challenge.  You can also see all the amazing projects by the other design team members.  You will be inspired by these talented designers!   

This month's image is this adorable and very patriotic little puppy.  I knew immediately that this image would be turned into a card to honor the members of our military.  The image was colored in Photoshop and transported to the Cameo software to be cut.
Since this puppy was going to be used for a patriotic card, of course I had to color him in red, white, and blue!  I decided to leave a shadow, or offset of white around the image to make it stand out against the background of the card.  It may be hard to tell in the photo, but the image was adhered using pop dots to give it a bit of dimension.

 "Heros don't wear capes, they wear dog tags."
As a proud Navy Mom, I will keep this card out on one of my tables so that I can honor my son!

Now it is time for you to head to The Scrapbooking Queen Royal Challenge and get all the details on how you can enter the challenge.  I look forward to seeing what you create!! You have until June 29th to get your projects in.  One winner will be chosen at random to receive a "Royal" prize package!

Thank you for stopping by today.  If you have kids who love to color, we are encouraging them to participate in this challenge!!  Craft together!  So much fun!
