Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

"It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC21). This week Silke Ledlow is hosting. Silke is challenging us to a sketch she has designed. As far as sketches go, there is not much explanation necessary. You can turn it and enlarge the sections to fit your card size. However, in the end, it should still look like the sketch. Good Luck!!!! Looking forward to seeing what you create with it!!!"

The stamp set I used is called, Patriotism on Parade. Not only is this set truly iconic, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Wounded Warrior Project. Here's a little history about this non-profit...
"The Wounded Warrior Project began when several individuals took small, inspired actions to help others in need.One night while watching the evening news, a group of veterans and brothers were moved by the difficult stories of the first wounded service members returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq. They realized then and there that something needed to be done for these brave individuals beyond the brass bands and ticker tape parades. The resulting objective was to provide tangible support for the severely wounded and help them on the road to healing, both physically and mentally. What had been initially viewed as a small contribution (compared with what the warriors had sacrificed while serving our country) has become WWP's signature program:WWP backpacks delivered bedside to wounded warriors."

There is quite a bit more information about this program and a fun challenge happening at Splitcoast Stampers, Please check it out HERE.
