Hi and welcome back for another Paper Smooches Picture Perfect challenge!
Here is our inspirational picture for this challenge:
I chose to go with the floral theme and used 3 panels to mimic the inspirational photo. The flowers are all from Paper Smooches' Friendly Flowers set. (The color scheme was inspired by some bedding I saw in a Pottery Barn Teen catalog.) Here is what I came up with:

Hi! Today I am sharing a card I made using the pilot image from Aero Boy by Deasy Designs. This stamp set is great for making cards for kids, but I also think you can go a little vintage with this set, too, since the pilots all have the 1920's feel with their leather helmets. I decided to use the cracked glass technique to make my main image look like an old photo. To achieve this look, first stamp your image, color it, and ink the edges of the cardstock. Next, cover your entire panel with versamark and then clear embossing powder. Heat the embossing powder and then cover the panel with versamark and clear embossing powder again- repeat several times. Last, pop your embossed panel in the freezer for a few minutes. When you get it out, start bending it slightly in several places and it will crack! To finish off my card, I added the "Fly with me" sentiment (also from Aero Boy) on a die cut banner (Papertrey Ink) and paired my image with some fun patterned paper from October Afternoon's Boarding Pass line.
Winners of the free stamp sets from the Deasy Designs launch party giveaway were announced Saturday. Check out the Deasy Designs blog to see if you are one of them!

For my card I chose to use all three of the soldiers in the set. I love how they look all lined up together underneath the flag! One thing I really love about this set is that it is perfect for making cards for those people in our lives who serve in the military. I am so thankful for all those who have served our country and for those who continue to serve and defend our freedoms! I feel so blessed to live in the United States of America and to be able to enjoy the many freedoms and opportunities that this country offers. I think it is important to let those who serve/have served know how much we appreciate them.
That's it for me today. Head on over to the Deasy Designs blog and check out some of the other cards the design team has made with this set. Don't forget to continue to check back throughout the week, too, as Showcase Week continues on the Deasy Designs blog! Thanks for stopping by today!
