It Takes Courage To Serve

Here is a card I made to send to one of our Heroes to express some of my thanks.

I used the ODBD stamp sets "Not Forgotten" and "Old Flag Background".  For the sentiment, I just inked up one line of the block sentiment.
I inked up the flag background stamp before stamping and then sponged some blue ink onto the soldier image after stamping it with the cocoa ink.
The sketch is Your Next Stamp:
