Memorial Day 2009

I thought today was a good day to post the Edwin card that I finished. It's Memorial Day in the U.S. and we have so many Service men and women to thank for the sacrifices they made for our country. I colored Edwin with my copic markers and used Kraft, Night of Navy and Papertrey Poppy Red for the card. My dp is from Basic Grey-the Boxer Collection. It's beautifu Reds and Blues gave the perfect touch to the card. The cross piece reminds me of semifore flags I've seen used. This card is 4 1/2 x 5/12.
I have such a long learning curve! I have finally figured out a little bit about editing my photos so hopefully they will look somewhat better. There is so much to learn!

Here's the coloring close up and the colors are listed below! Thanks for coming by today.
God Bless America!

Markers used: B41, B21, B34, B36, Y21, E31, E33, E35, E37, R05, R35, R17, R46, R39
