Colours for a Hero

Happy Monday!

Sort of...I overslept!  I must have been exhausted, because i also went to bed earlier than usual.  Could make for an interesting day!  And this means that I completely RUSHED to make this card.   I uploaded my card here, posted to the Colour Me...! challenge blog, and now I am filling in the details.  I nearly decided to just skip this, but I haven't finished a CMCC card for a while, plus I combined it with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I just wanted to start my Monday off right!  *wink*

This card is nearly flat, because I am going to put it in a box of Hero mail for Operation Write Home.  They are wrapping up their organization, and will only be receiving cards until August 1, 2015.  I have a lot of space in my box, so I need to hurry up and get cards made!  This is very self-explanatory.  Night of Navy card base, real red patterned paper, Sizzix oval die, and SU's "Words of Courage" stamp set, using real red and navy ink.  The star buttons were in a drawer...I have had them for years.  I bought them at a big box store, but I don't have the original packaging.  I wish I had put twine in them but I had to RUSH!  LOL  I even tried to cut the horizontal strip like a banner at fist; it was messy.  I think I *need* the new punch from SU!

I really need to tweak this card before I duplicate it and mail to our military heroes.  But at least I had my adrenaline rush to kick off my day!  Thanks for stopping by!
