Pals Paper Arts #43 Memorial Day


This week's challenge at Pals Paper Arts is "Memorial Day." This is our day as a nation to remember those who have given their lives for our country's freedoms. Sometimes we take those freedoms for granted, so let's not forget what the holiday is all about. I hope you will create something to show you remember, and check out all of our Design Team submissions for your inspiration if you need it.

I used a new stamp set, Itty Bitty Bits for the four round images on the Night of Navy strip. They are punched out with the circle punch from Itty Bitty Punches! How cute are they? My stars were punched from Whisper White and the Star punch, and I used the Ticket Corner punch for my Real Red and Night of Navy mattes. The sentiment is from the stamp set Define Your Life, a very handy set that will always be in my "keeper" section of stamps.

Shopping List:
Card Stock: Whisper White, Real Red, Night of Navy
Stamps: Itty Bitty Bits, Define Your Life
Ink: Real Red, Night of Navy
Extras: Ticket Corner, Itty Bitty, Star punches
