Welcome Home!

It's Saturday! It's Saturday!!  I still can't believe a year has gone by already and dh is finally home!! In honor of his return, I made this card with SU! Set of Courage which I have never inked up! I really wanted to make the soldier stand out the most with very little of anything else colored.  However, I started coloring the flag but I don't think I would next time.  The inside sentiment is a quote by Winston Churchill that say:
"Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities, because it is the quality that guarantees all others."

To color the image I used my Prismacolor Pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits to blend.  I used some dp by Paper Studio while the brad in the center of the ribbon is by K&CO. The ribbon is SU!.  I popped up the image and gently did an ink to paper sponging with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Antique Linen.  Simple and just a little something to give to the hubby in appreciation!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!
