Another Bandanna Congrats

I found out yesterday that a friend was selected for promotion. Well, I decided to make him a congrats card using the TJ Bandanna technique. Yes, I guess this is my favorite TJ technique, for right now at least! It does seem to work well for masculine cards so I guess that is why I gravitate toward it.

I decided to try to use the colors in the newest ACU (Army Combat Uniform) uniform, I should have used more green, but I am enough with the results. Of course this doesn't have the digital layout, but I wasn't that hard pressed to be precise. The colors are actually almost too light since it makes it difficult to see all the white dots. This is the card I finished last night.

Then this morning I woke up and realized that I used the incorrect rank for his promotion. This is Lieutenant Colonel instead of the "Full Bird" Colonel. Oops! Know anyone getting promoted to Lt. Colonel? I have a nice card for them. *eyeroll*
