you are not forgotten...

I am so excited about tomorrows Our Daily Bread Designs new release that I just had to squeeze in time to share a sneak peek for you while playing along with the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge.  Their challenge this week is to make a red, white and blue thank you card.

The sets Not Forgotten and the Old Flag background are simply beautifully done. The first time I saw them it brought a tear to my eye because I have a young man from my church that is currently serving in Afghanistan and he has been injured in the line of duty.  These sets are exactly what I needed to make a card to sent off to him to let him know that I (and my whole family) are thinking about him and praying for his safe return.
What I used:
SU early espresso, not quite navy, riding hood red, basic black, GP white
Memento black, Versafine black Ranger brushed corduroy and antique linen
Copic markers, sponge, twine, Michael's copper brads
