A Salute to our Veterans!

Today, we remember our veterans -- those that have died for our country, or have given tremendous sacrifices to fight and protect our freedom. My prayer is for peace, and my card, although not specifically red, white and blue, speaks of this and looks for peace. This is actually last week's Blogger's Challenge -- a patriotic theme. Although I finished it early in the week, I didn't find time to post until today.


Below, you will see some close-up photos of the card. I used Crystal Effects on the holly leaves, along with some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to resemble due on the leaves. Under all the photos is my holiday "recipe".




Stamps: Peaceful Season (Level 2 Hostess set from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog)
Ink: Stampin' Up Marina Mist Classic Ink; markers: Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler.
Paper: Stampin' Up Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla card stock.
Accessories: Chantilly Lace crochet trim, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Fine Supernova Stampin' Glitter in Aqua.

Thanks for stopping by!
Jeannie
