Whipped up a card as I was thinking on this Memorial Day weekend. So very thankful for the service of our men and women who choose to serve and defend our country, so we can continue to enjoy the freedoms we often take for granted.

Used only dies for this card. Take a look.

I used the flag die that is in with the Chocolate Greetings Die set. I cut three in white and two in patterned paper. I glued them side by side and then trimmed out with scissors. I cut a square in navy and added three tiny stars. They come in the 4 x 4 Journal Die & More set.

I cut two larger stars from the 3 Star Stitched Die set and layered them in the corner. I brushed some Wink of Stella glitter on the navy pieces. Wasn't crazy how it shows in the pics, so much prettier in person :(

For the "thankful", I used a die from Paper Trey Ink. I cut two and offset them to create a shadow.

The layered pieces of patterned paper are from Lori Whitlock's Patriotic Picnic paper collection, available in digital format at Jessica Sprague.
