Promotion Congrats

Today is Veterans Day, so I thought I'd share a patriotic card.

I made this a while back for a friend who got a promotion in the Air Force (the inside says "Congratulations on your promotion"; it's a retired stamp from Service & Sacrifice).  Again, it's an SCS sketch/color combo card, I'm getting very close to catching up on all of those : )

I made the card and then it sat for about two days before I decided to add the Real Red Candy Dot because it just looked a little naked without it and the card needed some more Real Red.  Don't believe me?  Here's the before shot:

One little dot, but I think it was just what this card needed.

Thanks for stopping by today!  And if you know any veterans, thank them for their service.

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Words of Courage, Service & Sacrifice (inside)
Ink:  Night of Navy, Sahara Sand (sponged on the star squares)
Paper:  Night of Navy, Sahara Sand, Whisper White, retired Real Red DSP
Accessories:  1 1/4" square punch (retired), Dimensionals, Brights Candy Dots

Yes, the little dot does add just that little bit of punch. Good job!
