And my design for this week's challenge...

I stamped the image of the soldier and scripture on first. I then created a mask to place over that half of the card and stamped the flag background on. I stamped the scripture on a second piece of kraft card stock, matting it and using pops dots to give it dimension. I used a paper piercing tool to outline all of my images and portions of the flag (white stripes.) I finished off my image with a simple satin yellow bow attached with a dress makers pin and affixed patriotic metal embellishment. Here's a close up...

Lori, wonderful job for this challenge. I love the way you used the piercing as borders and it looks great on the flag. I would never have thought to do that. Great card.
