Thank You for Keeping Us

Memorial Day 2022

Here we are, the last Monday in May, our day here in the US set aside to honor those in the armed forces who have lost their lives while serving to protect our nation.  How blessed we are that so many have been willing to serve this country proudly.

I'm sharing  a little patriotic card today with an image from Stampendenous, House Mouse, Star Spangled Mice.

While I doubt that this image was drawn in honor of Memorial Day, isn't it perfect for today's celebration?   

After stamping the image, I used my Copic markers for coloring (referenced below).  The stitched edges were made using the Pink & Main Stitched Rounded Square die set as well as the yellow matting. 

I made the card base out of navy blue cardstock, with a top fold and finished size 5" x 6".  I secured the mat and colored image close to the top fold so that I'd have the additional room at the bottom for the sentiment tag.   Once all of those pieces were securely on the card base, I added the blue organza ribbon at the top fold.  This completed the card design.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
