Freedom

I love my country! As a military wife I am extremely proud of the men and women who protect my freedom! One in particular, of course! And I am missing him right now!
I love the new patriotic sets from Our Daily Bread Designs. The flag from this "God Bless America" set covers practically an entire card front. Some of the DT girls have die cut ovals from the image. I love that effect! For this card, I've colored the flag in the background but adhered a layer of vellum over the top with my quote embossed on top. And I was so excited to be able to use this Karen Foster metal charm I found at Archiver's last month. It was the perfect embellishment.
I should be in Kansas if this posts at the right time!
I'll be back next Wednesday! But, you'll see my Divine Design post on Saturday!
Blessings~
Angel

This is a beautiful card. My one and only son served in the Marines for 4 years then 2 years in the Army and now he is in the National Guard full time, All the males of my family are/were military men fighting from WW1 (can you imagine) to Iraq. My prayers are with you.

Beautiful card! I like the charm and the addition of vellum. The military families hold a special place in my heart. My husband served for 8 yrs and my son will be joining the military in a couple years.

Angel, I can't imagine what it must be like to be a military spouse! My brain cannot wrap around the thought of being away from my husband for any length of time! I can tell by your work that these new sets mean a whole lot to you. Blessings to you and your hubby!
