Happiness

Hi everyone,

 

It’s Anzac Day today and a day were Australians and New Zealander’s remember all our fallen soldiers.  It is the anniversary of the first major military action which was fought by Australian and New Zealand forces in the First World War.

 

ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps and if want to know more about the ANZAC’s and the history of Australia Day you can visit the Australian War Memorial if you click here.

 

My card below has just one word on it.… happiness.

 

The sketch for this card is from Sketch Frenzy Friday and the colours from ColorLab’s current colour challenge:

I have used Pink Pirouette for the base of the card and the petal image from the Printed Petals stamp set.
