Thank You, Veterans!!

Today also marks a very important day...Veterans Day. For those of my friends outside of the U.S., Veterans Day is an annual holiday here that honors our military veterans. It started after World War I ended with the Germans signing an armistice (a truce) on the 11th hour on the 11th day on the 11th month of the year (1918). So many thanks and gratitude to our Veterans and their families!!

Speaking of Veterans Day, it is my turn to post on TaDa Creative Studios' FaceBook Page (please go visit and "LIKE" them if you are a FAN) so I thought it was most appropriate to create a card to commemorate this important day...

Stars N Stripe by Margie Higuchi
Supplies Cardstock: The Paper Company; Patterned Paper: TaDa Creative Studios (Star Spangled Banner paper, Festivus Collection); Embossing Folder: Sizzix; Ribbon: DCWV; Button: Tessa Ann Designs; Bakers Twine: Divine Twine; Tool: ScorPal; Adhesive: ScraPerfect (The Best Glue Ever)

I created the medallion to reflect a military theme - did it work? It turned out better than I thought. The pleated papers were used from the same patterned paper from TaDa - love how the flags look! Oh! The star embossed button is over the top wonderful - it's handmade by Tessa Ann Designs and is full of glitter :0)

ETA: I wanted to add that I am including this card for Paper Craft's Championing Award Medallions Challenge in the Moxie Fab World!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you have a great 11-11-11 and a wonderful weekend!
