Our son, an Army Reservist, leaves Saturday on his way to training, then Iraq. I made this card to go along with the cookies for the long bus ride to Northern California. I don't know how I'll fill in the inside yet, but I'm sure I'll find more to say than, "I'll miss you!"
I began with a So Saffron Base, added black with scoring courtesy of my Scor-Pal. The stamp of the soldier is on Very Vanilla, using Always Artichoke. The sentiment is stamped in Old Olive onto Very Vanilla. Both stamped pieces are backed in Always Artichoke cardstock. My colors were inspired by a new Army hat that my husband got last week. Their yellow is brighter, but I liked this toned-down So Saffon better.
