I was at Michaels the other day and noticed this cute vase embellishment in the clearance section. It was .99 for a pack. I snagged a couple of packs because I knew once they were gone...they'd be gone. I used an old Friskars stamp set for the flowers and sentiment. Then I added some lace and buttons. The blue Stickles really create a nice flow to the card. I really love blue ink on blue background paper.
I made this card to celebrate those who sacrifice so much for our freedom, for those who lost their lives during the 9/11 tragedies, and for those who give so much - without asking for anything in return. Here's to you!
