Freshly Made #87

We're getting ready to head off to the local Memorial Day parade. It's small but very moving as they stop at the bridge and have a 21 gun salute in honor of the service men and women lost at sea. They proceed to the cemetery where they shoot off another round and play taps.  I'm proud to say that my Dad served in the Army medic corps during World War II.

My card today uses the sketch from Freshly Made.
I needed a 50th anniversary card for some dear friends and this sketch was perfect for it.

I cut the numbers from the Sophisticated cartridge because I loved the little scrolls and they made it "fancy".  They are gold (as you can tell by the shine) with a shimmery blue shadow.  I used the same blue and gold for the strip, layering a piece of white cardstock embossed with the Damask folder on top.  The sentiment from Hero Arts is embossed in gold.  

I hope you have a wonderful day.  Thanks for stopping by to visit.
