I made today’s card using the Part of My Story stamp set and the Story Label Punch, along with the Oh My Stars embossing folder. The sentiment made me think of patriotic heroes, which is why I used the red, white, and blue color scheme. The star embossed background, gingham ribbon, and Red Rhinestones added to the patriotic feel (think checkered tablecloths and fireworks on the 4th of July.) Of course, anyone can inspire you, and you could make this card with any color combination you like.
