This card is one that came together so easily for me .  I had all the parts from other projects and experiments with the Cricut Artiste cartridge and all the pieces were sitting there begging to be used.  So...long story short, add a bit of ink and a sentiment, and some natural hemp and this card was made.

I love the Pear and Partridge paper and the Saddle/Ruby cardstock colour combination together.  Although Pear and Partridge is a Christmas paper pack it works very nicely as  background paper for other purposes too.
The flower rather reminds me of the poppies that are worn in November. I am thankful that I live in a great and glorious country and that we have so many men and women who have fought valiantly for our freedom.  So on November 11th (Remembrance Day) I will pause and remember those who fought for us and for me! Above all I will thank God that we live in a country that is still free and that we are free to live our lives serving Him!
Have a great day, Lucy :)
