Family Remembered


     This week at House Of Cards it's the turn of Shabby and Vintage following our sketch.  For me this sketch looked like our Union Flag and almost into November that could only mean one thing, remembrance.
     I found this piece of backing paper in my stash, I think it's left over from all the jubilee things that were around last year, I have made it shabby by tearing the edges, using brown Distress Ink and curling the corner. I used the same ink to colour the edge of a white card blank.
     The photograph is, if memory serves me right, my Great-Grandfather. It has been cut out with an oval die, the brown mount has been hand cut around the outside of the die as the next size up was too big. I have used a poppy without its stem and swapped the button middle for a black Candi.
     It's a very simple card which I hope conveys my appreciation of the sacrifices made by others to provide the freedom I enjoy living here in Britain.
     Please pop over to House Of Cards to see the DT's interpretation of the sketch and join us with yours.
