For the Anzac

Marvelous Mondays to you all!

I have a quick card post for you today using a the adorable Freebie Anzac Poppies Image from the lovely Becca at Becca's Place.  I have also opted to use the pre-colored version but both are available from her site along with many other gorgeous digital images all for FREE.  Please pop by and have a peak and share some love with her! You can find Becca HERE!

I made this card to keep in my stash for when Hubby gets a 'down' moment and for those times he doubts himself if the time he spends away from us is really worth the cause.  The poem I snagged from my Facebook page on Anzac Day when it came across my status feed and I fell in love with it and just had to use it.

This card is also not my usual style, it is really clean and simple as I did not want to take the focus off the poppies or the sentiment and it really felt nice to be able to finish a card without all the usual 'bang'.

Thank you for dropping in on me!
