Memorial Day Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Memorial Day Blog Hop!  If you have just come from Dana's blog, Paper Memories then you are right on track.  If you've come here first please go to the beginning and start at Michele's blog.  A big thank you to Michele for hosting this patriotic blog hop :-)

My grandfather and my dad have served their country.  Also, my brother, Don is currently in the Navy and has been since shortly after high school.  I'm so thankful to all in uniform who do so much to make America so great!!

Okay on to my card :-)

Recipe:
A2 size card base in white.

MS Seasonal Cake Art Cricut cart- star border (I used the shift of this image-so it's just the scallops) @ 1" x 6", stars @2" & 1 1/2"

Cuttlebug folder- from the Retro Kitchen set

Stamp is Studio G, Oriental Trading Co brad, Marvy gel pen for white doodles, red organza ribbon by The Ribbon Boutique, pop dots.

Thanks so much for hopping along and spending some of your Memorial Day weekend with us!  Have a great weekend and stay safe.  Your next stop is Brenda's blog.
