Adrienne's #4

Here is another card to send to our granddaughter at the Air Force Academy.  I am making cards to send to her so she can, in turn, send them on to her friends.  (More info in the previous post).  This time I am using clip art - which I sponged with chalk for a bit of a vintage look.  I also used  Steampunk EF, by Darice.  The white back of the Paper Studio DP shows through - I had not anticipated this but I like the effect.  I used bits of the You folder (Cuttlebug) for the brown strip.  subtle chalking with different browns add to the grungy look - though it does not show much here.  I had a bit of patriotic ribbon, and a piece of plastic (shelf liner, maybe...) as well as a bit of frizzy stuff for a bow.  It is actually from a package of doll hair.  (Can you tell I am trying to use up some odds and ends? )
