Double D - Patriotic / Support Our Troops

Hello Everyone!
Today begins a new challenge at the Double D Challenge Blog!

Here's the mood board we'll be using this time around for inspiration.

With all the turmoil in the world today, we are so blessed
with all the freedoms we have here in the U.S.A.
And, we wouldn't have those freedoms without the men and
women of the armed forces who sacrifice life & limb to keep us safe!

Today, please consider joining in our challenge and then go one step further ...
take that creation and send it to one of our troops who will be
so appreciative of hearing that they are not forgotten.  

Of course, be aware of what you are placing on that card!  
NO GLITTER or anything SHINY ... that little item could put them in harms way
be being detected through night vision goggles in the hands of the enemy.

Memorial Day is only a few weeks away so what better time to acknowledge & support our troops.
I found my image online and the sentiment as well ... I simply brought them both into a Word10 document and grouped them together.  I thought it kind of 'said it all'!

I've used the Memory Box 'Pinpoint Square Layers' die for my focus image.  A Cheery  Lynn Designs 'Marines' die and the Memory Box 'Grand Thank You' for a quick
and supportive creation.

I hope you'll come join in our challenge at Double D.  And, don't forget you could be selected as the prize winner via!
The prize being offered this challenge is this beautiful Cardmaking & Papercraft 'Thank You' Metal Die-Cutting Stencil.

Come join in the fun!
Hope to see you there!

This is a stunningly dramatic and impressive card, Darlene! It's absolutely perfect the way you've put it together and with the best patriotic papers. The dies are awesome. Love it!

This is such a wonderful card. I love your image. I would never think to look on line for this wonderful sentiment and image. It goes so well with the papers and the thank you and marine dies. Very striking card.
