Happy Birthday, Jamey!!

Hello Everyone!

Hope your week is going well!

Today's card is the birthday card I made for my awesome son-in-law! He, my daughter and grandson are stationed in Germany for a few more weeks. He has done two tours in Iraq and will be leaving for Afghanistan in the Fall. He is definitely my hero! They are all heroes to me!

I started with a kraft card base. The camouflage background and the dog tag are die cuts from the Stand and Salute Cricut cartridge. I used three colors of stock for the background. The sentiment is stamped with a Hero Arts stamp and embossed! I used a chain from a keyring for the dog tag. This card was so much fun to put together and Jamey loved it! Hope you like it, too!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great week and I hope a creative one!

Blessings to you,
Vicki
