Let Freedom Ring

This week at Sunday Stamps we have a color challenge, and when I first saw the colors I immediately thought of a patriotic card. With the recent loss of 15 Marines and a Navy Corpsman in a plane crash and a local solider from Wasilla killed in Afghanistan my heart is especially full of gratitude for our service members and their families. My dad was a Marine and my husband is a retired FMF Navy Corpsman  and I'm very lucky that they always came home safe. Sadly not all military families are that lucky and we must not forget why we have the freedoms we do.

The sentiment is a free one offered from Power Poppy stamps, you can find it HERE. I uploaded it to Word and changed the color to blue to go along with the scheme of my card. After using the circle die cut I used dimensionals to adhere it to the card.

My layout is from the current CAS(e) this Sketch challenge, it was perfect for what I had in my mind for my card.  After seeing some of the cards by their DT I figured it was ok to put the circle on the card like I did.

Make sure you head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us!
