Stars & Stripes... 39

Mona Pendleton | Friday, May 25, 2012 @ 7:11 PM | , ,

Happy Memorial Day weekend to all who celebrate! Many thanks to all the men and women who have sacrificed their lives both past and present to protect the U.S.A. Do you have any fun plans? Scott and I are currently in San Diego for the long weekend. I taught my first card making class at Paper Tales today and met five lovely ladies who seemed to have as fun as I did :) I'm looking forward to meeting a few more ladies during tomorrow's class.


I made this card in celebration of Memorial Day using the newly released fun patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Declaration collection along with stamps from PTI that have never kissed an ink pad until now! 
The Pink Paislee Declaration collection is a versatile collection full of a variety of patterns that may easily be used to create all sorts of themed projects! 
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current MOJO Monday sketch challenge:
and for color inspiration, I played along with the current Play Date Cafe Color Challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a fun and safe weekend! Be Sweet :)


Other supplies used:
