Isn't this inspiration picture too adorable? Hop over and give Miranda some kudos, since she's the one behind the scenes putting these together for us.
Today's card highlights a digital stamp from The Stamping Boutique. I have the perfect little soldier to showcase for a fun card for a little boy.

Soldiers always have these beautiful uniforms on, and I decided to give AJ one of those royal blue ones. I remember somewhere in the recesses that yellow and blue are suppose to be complementary colors, so AJ received some yellow-gold trims.
The background is created using an impression plate. Since I wanted the texture to stand out more, I swiped my Vintage Cream ink pad over it. I actually am not a fan on how it turned out. It's too prominent, but the gray and yellow was too stark of a contrast for me, too. It's one of those lost causes... can't be happy one way or another ;)
Here an up close look of AJ...
