Veterans Day Outlawz CP challenge

Hello Everyone,

Hope everyone's week has went well. It is bright and sunny here today. Beautiful fall day.

This Sunday here in the US is Veterans Day. The copic challenge over at The Outlawz is commemorating it with our challenge this week. Veterans remembrance. I am doing this card in honor of my Grandfather who I lost when I was 9 years old. He served our country way back in World War One when he was just 17.

I have made this card using my Cameo to create the silhouette of the GI kneeling down at a grave cross. 


The image is by Elizabeth Dulemba and is colored with my Copic.


The Flag background paper is by Bo Bunny. I love the way it looks with this. 


 The image and border as well as the word Remember were also cut out with my Cameo. 


Now is the time to take a moment to remember all the men and woman that have given so much to help achieve and keep our freedom.


I am entering this into the following challenges.
