Memories...and Cards For Heroes

My CFH Blog Hop is just below this post!
This card will be going to CFH


Here's my Monday challenge card (I do with a group of friends on SCS)....Deb sent us these beautiful Basic Grey papers, the brad and some ribbon. We were to use at least 2 of the 3 papers, the brad and we could use the ribbon if we wanted.

I combined the flowers from Our Daily Bread's, Sing Unto The Lord, and Crafty Secrets' Bird Notes.
The flowers and bird are colored with Copics, then with the Spellbinders die in place I colored in the bg with Prismacolor pencil blended with baby oil. The flower centers have stickles in them.

I hope you have a safe and happy Memorial Day...remember why we're celebrating this day!

Now, I'm off to make baked beans!!

Thanks for stopping!
