Memorial Day "Thank You" ~Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky

I just wanted to take the time today to say "thank you" to all that have served our country and to those that are still serving.

This is my entry for the challenge at the "Getting Cricky" blog
the challenge is to make any project with a banner!!
I love how this card turned out....I made the "star" with the little banner dies for Papertrey Ink.
Each banner was hand stamped...some with itty bitty backgrounds from Papertrey
the rest from stamps I had.
Have a safe and Happy Memorial Day everyone!

Your card is fabulous and says it all to our military. The banner is wonderful and the star in the middle is great. I am a new follower and can't wait to see what you create next.

This is my first time to your blog and I dare say I love it. I am also following you now too. What an awesome card also. I am partial to the Red, White and Blue and I might have to card lift this.
