American Beauty is actually a name of a rose my Dad loved so he would have liked this theme. And since he fought in WWII I wanted to include him in this patriotic tribute. The 3 torn pieces sort of remind me of flags on a banner. Thanks Jen for planning such an appropriate challenge for this Holiday Week-end.

This is lovely. I know your Dad would have loved it. My Dad never fought in WWII but he worked for a Munitions factory and was very patriotic and an avid gardener. This reminds me of him, so thank you for sharing this lovely card, it brings back wonderful memories of a very special Dad.

Great design! I really like the "banners" with the red,white, & blue ribbon. I have a few patriotic stamps~~ hope I have time to pull them out & play this weekend. Thanks for the challenge & a bigger thanks to all who have fought for my freedom~~ past & present!!!! I am truly grateful!
