Memorial Day 2014

Hello and welcome to 2craftyKaties. 

As I was researching the origins of Memorial Day to explain to my kids I came across one of the traditional observances, the poppy.   

The wheel starting turning and here is my card in honor of all of the service men and women that have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  

Here is a close up,

And one more close up

The recipe for this card is, all from Jaded Blossom:
Ticket Die (card base)
Ticket insert Die
“Support the troops” – Candy Wars stamp set
Mini Tag Die

Thank you for stopping by ~Katie Sr
