Thank You For Our Freedom

Lisa here. 
Happy Fourth of July. 
 My son just returned home from serving 5 years on the US Marines.  I am so happy to have him home safe.  He was the inspiration behind this card.  I am thankful to all the men and women that serve and have served so we can enjoy our freedom.

My card is a 5 x 5 card base folded at the top.  I cut out half a circle using a Spellbinder circle die then embossed so it looks like the neckline on a military green t-shirt.  I embossed my dog tag on dark gray paper  using Celebrate Freedom set then cut out.  Added an eyelet then made my chain using the Stripes 202 set.  I stamped the line of small dots then stamped again moving the stamp so I could get in between the ones I just stamped then I added a thin line using a black pen so it looks like a chain with a dog tag on it.  I rounded all my corners using a 1/2 corner rounder.  Very easy card.
