Remember the Fallen … Memorial Day

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I have a special card I would like to share with you. It’s my way of saying “Thank You” and pay my respects for those who have fought and served our country … but did not make it home.

Today is the day we pay our respect for those who gave all to give us the freedoms we enjoy.

A simple “Thank You” card made with the Pleasant Poppies stamp set…

I embossed them in black and colored them in with the new Watermelon Wonder maker… The base card is also in the Watermelon Wonder. I was going to use the Calypso Coral, but this was closer to the color I picture poppies as.

The “Thank You” comes from the “Celebrate Baby” stamp set. I love this set and I’m sorry it is on the discontinued list.  I added a Vintage Brad to give my card a little brass, and to finish it off … I simple spritzed a bit of black to create a more interesting background.

Enjoy your Memorial day … and take a moment to remember those who paid the ultimate price to keep our country free.

Thank you for joining me today.
