Remembering Our Fallen Heroes


The Shabby Tea Room Week #10 challenge was to use red, white and blue on a card. Memorial Day is coming up at the end of this month so a little Patriotism is called for. This holiday is supposed to be a day of remembrance for the men and women of our military who have given their lives in service to our country. This is a very simple and humble gesture so I made a pretty simple and humble card.

The base is plain white cardstock. The designer paper is from the All American Collection by Adornit Carolee's Creations. I used Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to give everything an aged look. The stars are chipboard that I painted with Picket Fence Distress Crackle paint and then inked. A little hemp twine, some buttons, a baby Prima rose, and some yummy shabby seam binding from Debbie's etsy store finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by!
