Celebrating Veteran's Day

I made this card a while back for my Uncle's Birthday.  Since I had not yet posted it, I thought putting it up on Veteran's Day was appropriate. I know there aren't any veterans left from the Civil War, but it is about celebrating those who have fought and those who continue to fight for our freedom.  I honor them today.  Thank you for your service to our country.

The image is a digital one from Hambo Stamps and is one that is dear to me. I am a descendant of a soldier who fought bravely for the Confederate Army.  My uncle has done a great deal of research on our Confederate ancestors as well as others, so that is why I chose this great image for his birthday.  I know he loved it!
