Our Daily Bread Designs {Challenge 15}

Wow, is it already the last Saturday in May? How can it be Memorial Day weekend already! I tell ya, the older you get the faster time flies! Today, the ODBD Challenge Team would love for you to use stars and/or stripes on your creation. Since Memorial Day is Monday, we thought this would be fun. Please note that your card or project can be patriotic but it does not have to be. And thank you to all of our military and military families that have served this amazing country. And a special thanks goes out to my precious Dad, my husband, and my father-in-law for all serving in the U.S. Air Force! I am so proud of all 3 of these amazing men!

For my card, I chose not to do a patriotic theme. It is also my grandmother's birthday this weekend. She is the one many of you have been praying for after she suffered several mini strokes Mother's Day weekend. She is not any better but we continue to pray for God's will for her! We truly appreciate your prayers! I am praying she will like her card. I used the new Basic Grey Max & Whiskers paper. You can see one of the patterns is striped so it worked perfect for the challenge. Then I added a chipboard star for fun! :) To dress it up a bit I added the awesome Zva Creative pearls that are also available in the ODBD store. The sentiment comes from the ODBD set Happy Birthday.
Papers: PaperTrey Ink, Basic Grey Max & Whiskers
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs Happy Birthday
Stamp Ink: Ranger clear EP, SU chocolate chip
Embellishments: PaperTrey Ink buttons, Deluxe Designs chipboard star, Zva Creative pearls, sewing machine, misc. twine
