Because This is Our City

Today we remember those lost, we celebrate those recovered, and we encourage those continuing their recovery. We are Boston Strong. This is our city.

Boston Strong

I created this card as more of a celebration than anything else. Around here, we take a lot of pride in our city. It's a big thing. We did that before, but we do it even more now. The colors are taken from the Boston Marathon colors.  Gotta love neon yellow and blue! The Boston Strong stamp was a limited edition from Hero Arts that was available for some time last year. The background is the Basic Grey/Hero Arts Highline Chalkboard stamp.  I used Tsukineko Radiant Neon inks.
