MMSC106.....Midnight Madness Challenge!

I hope you all had a lovely long weekend and were able to say "thank you" to our veterans for all they have done. We all know that freedom isn't free! With Memorial Day and then the Fourth of July coming up, I was feeling a bit patriotic so I decided to say Happy Birthday to America! What better way to do it than with an American favorite......the Golden Retriever! Priscilla has the most adorable image that was perfect for my idea, she is part of the set called Easter Egg Hunt Dog set! There are four (4) images in this set, take a look here!!

For this weeks challenge (MMSC106), I am using the girl with the bow in her hair.....my personal favorite!!
 As always, you choose, CAS or fancy......or somewhere in between!!  Here is my card!
Isn't she absolutely adorable??!!! My paper is a digital set from Gina Jane called Land of Liberty.
The inside :

 the envelope and another view of the card front:


A special thank you to all veterans past, present and future, and a very special thank you to the veterans who have influenced my life.
