Scrapalicious USA Challenge #4-Memorial Day

Hello friends.  Today for the Scrapalicious USA Challenge we are honoring Memorial Day.  When growing up as a child I remember going to visit loved ones gravesides on Memorial Day with a flower rememberance and seeing all the many graves decked out with American flags to honor our soldiers who sacrified for the freedoms we enjoy and sometimes take for granted.  As a young girl it would make me a bit thoughtful and solemn about what that actually means to me. This card was created with that same feeling of reverence I felt at that time.


We hope you will choose to join us on the latest challenge at the Scrapalicious USA blog.  As always, Cindy is offering a wonderful gift certificate to her fabulous store where prices are always much lower than you will probably find locally.  She ships really fast and has fantastic customer service.  Take a moment and go check the store out for yourself!  Also, if you would like to learn more about coloring with Copic Markers, please check out my tutorials.
