Tang Soo!

I have a very special card for the new Sentimental Sunday Challenge "Anything Goes" and a sentiment!  Aren't they just the best!  You get to enter all of those very specific cards that pretty much serve an occasion that is out of the ordinary!

Well. . .  my son is getting really close to his black belt in Master Collins' Tang Soo Do and I needed to get on the job of making a special congrats card for when he does . .(not to mention my need to use this fab new image from Mo Manning too!)






I found this great sketch in a submission call at Crafting Ireland, (Fabulous new Ezine, and noticed the simple layout and the 6 stripes needed and immediately thought of the 6 belt colors prior to getting your black belt!  Obviously this project didn't win, or I wouldn't be showing you all, (hehe).  Oh well, there's always next time!  I tried the swirly sewn look on this (Not as easy at it looks).



I Used a scanned patch from my sons dobach and edited it as you can see behind the boy image!  Isn't it great all red, blue, green and black just like some of the 6 colored ribbons are symbolic of the 6 belts before black.


I intend to make a smaller version of this as a 4x4 card for parents to give to their children when they get promoted as the moms and dads have asked over and over again!
