In Honor of Memorial Day

Greetings everyone!  It has been a couple of days since I have posted. It feels good to be back!  Today, I am sharing a card I was inspired to make for the upcoming Memorial Day Holiday here in the States.  I worked with images from the She-roes and Heroes plates, both from Artistic Outpost.  I smooshed Festive Berry and Faded Jeans Distress Inks on my Craft Sheet, misted them with water and sopped up the lovely inkiness with a white card stock panel.  The Statue of Liberty and Wings were stamped with London Fog Memento Ink on the background panel.  The focal images were stamped on white card stock with more Festive Berry and Faded Jeans DIs, pieced together and matted with Black paper.  Sentiments were stamped with Black StazOn Ink and matted with red card stock.  Everything was distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  Snippets of patriotic ribbon and Baker's Twine and Chrome Liquid Pearls complete my card.  In honor of all of those who have given their lives for our nation's service, may we pause this Holiday weekend and give thanks! Best wishes, Yvonne
