Freedom, Honour, Courage


The theme for the challenge at OSAAT (One Stitch At A Time) this week Military. but your entry can of course be tangential if you're scratching your head for ideas :P
I've used the beautiful Aloria stamp by Lexi's Creations to make my piece, and you can buy it HERE. And don't forget that there's a massive 30% off sale going on at Stitchy Bear Stamps for the month of July, so you can pick up some bargains too :D
These are the other challenges that I had in mind when creating my card:
Mojo Monday - sketch 146 (turned on its side)
Craft Your Passion - stitches
Critter Challenge - use at least 4 stars (I'm not sure if you can see them in the small picture, but all the white bits on the unicorn are stars)
Friends Having Fun - vintage red, patriot blue, tattered white
Think Ink - stitches
Digital Tuesday - red white and blue
Riley & Co - use the colours of your flag (Union Jack and red white and blue in my case)
Theme Thursday - Animals
Make Up for the Weekend - critters

I think this is just an amazing card Susan and yes, well, I think it is tangential. Graet colours to go with it.
