Art Every Day - Day Six!


This is the sixth day of Art Every Day, but this is actually my first post. Sometimes things don't always go the way you plan them, ya know?? On Monday evening, I was asked to make a Marine birthday card (it's their 239th birthday!!!), and not having any Marine stamps, I was a bit puzzled as to where to start! But I had made a naval themed birthday card for Thomas' father (see HERE), and so that was my starting off point.

My finished card:

So what do you think???

Cool card! I think you did a great job with it.

I have a cousin who served in the Marines (was in Vietnam for quite awhile) and he has been posting a lot about the Marines on his Facebook page.
