We will remember ..........

In memory of my two grandfathers who both fought in WW1 and to honour my great uncle who died in France in 1918 aged 23.

I was given the poppy stamp but I'm certain it is one of Joanna Sheens. I've stamped with memento and coloured with promarkers then layered onto red and black card. Finished with a black bow and pearl which I coloured with a promarker. Words are computer generated.

Challenges entered:

Wags n Whiskers - black + ribbon and pearl
Sweet Stampin - anything goes
Totally Gorjuss - I remember
Sparkles Forum - Remembrance Sunday
Hiding in my Craftroom - anything goes
