We Salute You!

This is the second of the set of three "man" cards I made. It was mailed off last week to my nephew graduating from college. On the inside was the message...
"We Salute You"...to congratulate him on his big day. I wanted something bright and festive for this card. The stripe patterned paper had great colors, teal blue, a fun "not quite" red and a deep maroon. I pulled more of the teal and maroon out with the harlequin paper. A gray blue ribbon tied in a knot...and grandfather in his WWI uniform, giving a big SALUTE! Nothing is more manly than a man in uniform.

OBTW...
This Wednesday the 19th of August is my Heritage Scrapbook Workshop
runs 3:30 to 5:30, you can come and play with us by giving Mystic Paper a call and signing up.

Your nephew loved the card by the way! Very manly and nothing is better than seeing a family hero in uniform.
