Now on with today's project:

Today's card is in rememberance of my very own Yankee Doodle, my sweet father-in-law, Ron.

He was such an amazing Dad, Father-in-Law, Hubby and Grandpa.  We miss him dearly.
Happy Birthday in Heaven Dad! We love you.

Ok, now that I'm teary eyed, here is how I created this one.

I used, you guessed it, my very favorite inks, Ranger Distress Inks, to create this one.

I water colored with them, free-handing the stars and stripes design.  After they were completely dry, I used white
pigment ink and a Heidi Swapp dot stencil to create the "stars."

The sentiment is stamped with Versa Fine Black Onyx ink and heat embossed with WOW clear embossing powder.

Next up is Haidee
