In Honor Of Memorial Day

Happy Saturday All !!! It was a soggy day here.. Lots of rain and thunderstorms so I had plenty of time to craft. Since Monday is Memorial Day I made a card that I would like to dedicate to each and every service member past and present.

Plain white cardstock..distressed with Fired Brick Tim Holtz Ink
The rosette was made using the Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge along with the star in the center.
I added some bling to the stars around the edges to make them sparkly (sorry i know they are hard to see)
The sentiment came from K Andrew Design Set "Freedom Isnt Free"
I also used the same set to stamp the star.

The challenges I am entering this card into:

Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays - Stars and Stripes
Little Scrap Pieces - Use Red
More Than Favors - Wacky Wednesdays #71 Memorial Day
Craft Your Days Away Challenges: Challenge #46 - Red White and Blue
Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge PWC207 - Bright and Bold Colors

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a happy and safe Memorial Day!

<3 Until Next time!
