FCCB CHALLENGE # MEMORIAL DAY

Hi! Everyone.  I want to share my project for the Memorial Day challenge at FCCB this week.  I know we all have members of our family who have been in some form of military service.  My grandfather served in the Marines during WWII.  He was stationed in the Pacific and was one of the lucky ones who returned home after the war and died many years later safe at home.  I want to thank him and all those who defend our country against our enemies foreign and domestic, which seems to be happening a lot too often lately.


My card has a vintage patriotic theme to it. Once again I used one of those great images from Geko Galz. I wanted to showcase this image so I used a white card stock as the base.  The mat behind the picture is red card stock, I think it frames the image perfectly. Tried to keep with a red, white and blue color scheme. The stars ribbon I bought last year for a 4th of July scrapbook and this was some leftover. I like trying to use up scraps. A white button in the corner with some red hemp finished off the image.  For the border I used Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge.  This cartridge has some great border cuts as well as rosettes.  I used Crystal Stickles to highlight the stars.

Please join us this week as we celebrate and remember those who have defended our country.
Hope you have a good and safe Memorial Day weekend.

Bye, Bye for Now
