May is filled with a lot of things to celebrate: my hubby’s birthday, margaritas for Cinco de Mayo, our wedding anniversary, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, the official start of summer at the Jersey shore and Delaware beaches. But most importantly is Memorial Day in our family. A day to remember those who served our country. Our family church always has Memorial Day services in the church followed by services on the cemetery. It has been our family tradition for as long as I can remember to attend these services. Dad was a Ranger in WWII, landed in Normandy and survived capture and being a prisoner of war and now has his place in the Old Soldiers Home in Heaven. He passed the day before Memorial Day weekend 11 years ago so my card is representing his star among the skies. Enough personal stuff and onto my card.
I first created my cloud background using my “Bonnie” cloud stencil and blending lightly in blue and purple without reinking my brushes. Next I die cut my star and star frames from Spellbinders Star Nestabilities die set. The center white star is layered but the red and blue frames are inlaid. The sentiment is from Gina K Designs Stately Flowers 7 and surrounding the sentiment I used Taylored Expressions Little Bits – Stars die.
So much inspiration from the inspiration mood board. Thanks for another fun challenge. I always am very inspired by our Buddy Judy and her amazing patriotic cards.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.
