Memorial Day

At JAS, the theme is Memorial Day, and here is what I created:


The vintage clip art is courtesy of The Graphics Fairy. I highlighted parts of the image with a Sakura Jellyroll Stardust pen. I tore strips of red paper out of my stash and layered it onto the card base to mimic the flag's stripes. I had some dark blue star paper that I tore into a square, attached that, then mounted the vintage image onto the cardstock.

Simple, but pretty! Please join us at Just-A-Scrappin'!

UPDATE: This was chosen as the DIY Craft Pick of the Week at:

 
I am so honored & thrilled.

This is beautiful! I didn't realize at first sight that you had done the torn paper; I thouught it was printed flag paper. I really like that graphic, too. I saw this at Karen's Graphics Fairy site and am adding you to the blogs I follow in hopes that I will get some tips on the card making I am starting to do. Holly
