Speedys Challenge -- 58

 Speedy’s challenge is to use a flower, either paper or silk.   When I received this BEAUTIFUL  All Aboard set from MFP, I knew I had to use it.  My Challenge:  how to fit a flower in with a masculine like card?  The train and old station stop ,reminded me immediately , of olden days and I thought of WW I veterans returning home after long years at war.  Imagine their delight to see the familiar train stop of their home town.  The flower has the symbolism of the red poppies we see offered today for the Veterans and prompted my little computer generated “gratitude” tag to attach to it.  All papers, embellishments, ribbons come from Mark’s Finest Papers. Click on the blinkie for shopping fun. Smile
Join us in the challenge and you could win a free stamp set, a surprise set that will be released next month.  What’s better than free? Open-mouthed smile
