Thanks For Everything - Curtain Call Act 28

Here we are, another Sunday, another great inspiration photo for the Curtain Call.   A very unique color combination this week.  I welcome the challenge.

I contemplated a few different sets for this challenge before the idea struck me.  This color combo could be used for a patriotic card.  Memorial Day is only a few weeks away and our neighbor is a veteran.  He has served in Desert Storm and more recently in Afghanistan.

I wanted to keep it simple.  The layered star comes from the Stars Big Shot Die.  The Not Quite Navy layer, followed by the Whisper White sent through my new Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  The top layer is Sticky Cuts, then covered in Rose Red glitter.  The sentiment is from Thanks for Everything and is stamped with Versamark with Clear Embossing Powder on top.
