This was my Memorial Day card, and it is not what I started out with.  I almost threw it out as it was almost completely ruined, but I tried to save it anyway.   Here is my feeble attempt.  I stamped the background with a Scrap Block from Cornish Heritage Farms and embossed the eagle and stars (Land That I Love, Stampin’ Up).   The card stock was sewed, airbrushed and then distressed.  Hemp twine (from Archiver’s) was added last.
