OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop

Hello all and welcome to the 2013 Operation Write Home Memorial Day blog hop!
For my card I used sketch #128 from the OWH blog.  It was a card that came together very quickly and I really like the end result!

I used the Vintage Nation cardstock from the Paper Studio for my card.

I wanted to send out a huge thank you to all those in the military and their families for their service and dedication to our country!  We would not be the land of the free without the brave!

I hope you all have a wonderfully crafty day.
