Stampin Royalty Challenge #45

This week at Stampin Royalty we're challenging you to an inspiration challenge. Tomorrow is Remembrance Day here in Canada. You might know it as Vetran's Day or Armistice Day. With this photo montage below we challenge you to honour those who have given their lives for your country. Wherever you come from, this challenge is for you.

So here's how I made this card. First I stamped the "wreath" using the medallion stamp. I stamped it with Garden Green on Whisper White, and I carefully cut it out and also cut out the middle to get a wreath shape. I got this idea from the fabulous Arielle Gordon. Click here for her blog. The poppies were cut out of the DSP which is available as a hostess set, I also used Glimmer Brads as the poppy centres. I used Real Red Satin Ribbon across the wreath and cut the letters out using the Naturally Serif Sizzlit die for the Big Shot. The gold paper came on the inside of a Christmas Card I received last year. The Lavendar Ribbon is made using retired ribbon from the Fairy Tale Ribbon Originals available on the Clearance Rack.

2. Paper – Whisper White, Garden Green, In Color DSP
3. Ink – Garden Green, Poppy Parade
4. Accessories – Glimmer Brads, Naturally Serif Sizzlits Strip Die, Real Red Satin Ribbon, Fairy Tale Ribbon Originals, Stampin Dimensionals

Fabulous Card. Brought tears to my eyes. The perfect symbol of remebrance...a wreath. Reminded me of all the years growing up in Washington D.C. when my Mom would take me to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier for special days like Veterans'Day and we would watch the laying of the wreath. Thanks for the memories this card engendered.
