Inspired Stamps DT Post

 Hello Everyone, Today my Inspired Stamps card was inspired by my brother.  His birthday is coming up and because it is so close to the 4th, when we were young the decorations and festivities of the 4th were always inspiration for his cake, so I thought I would go back to our days of youth and make him a patriotic card.  He also served in the military, so this is fitting.  I used Perfect Sentiments (Inspired Stamps) in Ladybug red (Memento) .  I made the rosette from patriotic papers in my stash (old, old, old) and added some tails from the Spellbinder banner set.   I used stars dp (also old, old, old from my stash) and a piece of red grosgrain ribbon for a border. My brother lives in the mountains, so I stamped a scene from Scenic View (Inspired Stamps) and the sentiment May the Lord Bless your day.  I just outlined the image with Copic markers and went over with blending pen for some interest.
I wish everyone a happy safe holiday and I encourage you to check out the other DT creations.
