HI There.  Happy Fourth of July!
Thanks to all former, current and future military families for their
service to this great country.
This card features a die I picked up at Hobby Lobby (LYB?)

Fintastic "Tank You"

Sharing a card with an ocean/water theme.
Bit of yellow water color in the back with blue splatters
I used 3 different distress inks to make the waves and
generously covered them in glossy accents.

Glossy Accents works so well to add "water" to a project:
