Hi Susan here....

We have a new challenge starting today at Aud Sentiments and the theme is 'Happy Thanksgiving or something you are Thankful for'. For full details of the challenge look HERE!
We have a great sponsor this time -
Her name is Catherine Pooler and she is an Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrator. She is offering the winner of this challenge one free month of Club Inbox. See the post on the Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog for full details. 
Now for my card...... The theme today was very inspirational for me and my card is for Remembrance Sunday to give Thanks to all the soldiers who have fought and given their lives for us and our freedom in the various wars over the years....
I have deliberately kept my card simple because I wanted the sentiment of the card to be more important than any embellishments. The black base card is from The Paper Mill Shop, beautiful card from here in a variety of weights and colours, the 'poppy field' is from a My Craft Studio CD, with images based on the early years of 1900. I have distressed the edges and layered the poppy field in the centre of my card. The beautiful satin red ribbon is from our local market.

This beautiful sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs, and designed by Ann Vento, it says everything I wanted to say!! I have distressed the edged of the nestie with red ink.

I am entering this card into the following challenges.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card and all your wonderful comments they are much appreciated. I hope you liked it.
Love Susan

  9. What a very special and unique card Mam. I love what it represents and because of that I love that you kept it so simple, your caring sentiment shines through where it may not have if you had over-embellished it as you said. Normally such a simple card from either of you would look very odd but I think this is a fitting tribute to our heroes.
    Great job Mam xxx
