You're My Hero

I have another guy card to share today. Yay for getting some more masculine things added to my stash! This one uses the rockin' You're My Hero set by Taylored Expressions, along with some very cool designer papers from the TE Rock Star Key Ingredients Kit. The funky metallic stripe reminds me of colored stage lights and special effects.

I stamped the silhouette guitarist in Versafine Onyx Black onto one of the rock star designer papers, then clear embossed and die-cut into a circle. For the "you're my" portion of the sentiment, I inked each letter individually, stamped, and cut them out to make the little tabs. I've seen this look around a bit lately and love how it looks around circle panels. "Hero" is stamped in black on white and notched on one end to make the banner/flag. The green splotch is just a very small part of a much larger splotch image in the set.

Remember, You're My Hero is the current Taylored Experssions Giving Tree set, which means that $7 of every set purchased is donated to Cure Search.
