Happy Veteran's Day!!

Totally Papercrafts Challenge #92 - Victorian

It's Victoria's turn to host our challenge at Totally Papercrafts so it's fitting that she has chosen the theme....Victorian. I do have to say that this is a little outside my comfort zone. So, this was definitely a challenge for me. I guess it's good to reach outside your box sometimes. I sure had fun creating this card and I have to say that I am pretty pleased.
It is Veteran's Day, formerly known as Armistice Day here in The United States. I wanted to make a patriotic themed card to show love and support for all our Veterans and to give thanks to them for their sacrifice.
God Bless You All!!

I don't usually show the inside of my cards, but sometimes I think I like it more than others. (Lol) This is one of those times so I am sharing.
