Rockin' Taylor's sketch

This is a loose interpretation of Taylor's sketch this week! See the original HERE. I needed a card to show support for someone in the military, and Taylor's "You're my Hero" set just arrived in my mailbox this week, so I decided I better get it inky! This set is part of Taylor's Giving Tree program; $7 from the sale of each set supports cancer research, a cause near and dear to my heart.
To make the card, I punched some red and blue stars with my Fiskars squeeze punch, added some stickles and then put some Heidi Swapp acrylic stars over them. It's kind of a cool effect! I also pulled out some ancient magic mesh for some texture. It's a pretty clean and simple design, but it needs to mail easily!
Supplies:
Stamps: You're My Hero, Taylored Expressions
Ink: Real red, night of navy
Paper: real red, night of navy, whisper white
Accessories: Magic mesh, Nestabilities, Heidi Swapp stars, Fiskars squeeze punch, Stickles
