Celebrate the Brave

 I made this card for the challenge at Out of a Hat Creations, Stars and Stripes.  The paper is tissue paper from one of my birthday presents, the images are from Gecko Galz Red White and Blue collage set.  I used my Perfect Tears rulers (see my side bar for coupon code ) to tear the sheets of tissue and a little Tim Holtz Barn door red to trim it off.  
As I celebrate the 4th of July and our Independence I remember that we could not be free without the brave men and women serving our country in the Military, my thanks to all of you, you are "the brave", we "celebrate".  That's it for today, hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  Thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  5. That birthday present paper came in very handy. It's perfect for this project. I hope you get featured in this challenge. Even thought I read the directions for the rulers, I'd been interested in seeing a tutorial from you on how you use them...or did you post one way back and I missed it? enJOYed your celebration of our brave soldiers.
