My Pink Stampers September 11th Challenge

I made this card for the challenge going on over at My Pink Stamper. The reason I chose to do this card is that one of my biggest memories as a child is when my mom took us out to the big tree in our front yard and had all the children tie yellow ribbons on the branches while she sang "Tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree." When I asked her why we were tying the ribbons on the tree she said is was to support my oldest brother while he was off fighting in Desert Storm, and to let people know he is out there and we're praying for him to come home safe.
He did come home safe and I am so proud of him and his wife and also for my other brother and his wife for serving our country and trying to keep us safe.

The tree was cut from Paper Doll Dress Up, cut at 4in., The grass was cut from the same cart. with fit to length at 5 3/4, The leaves are from Speaking Of Fall at 1in and at 1 1/2 in. The sentiment is from MPS Stamps.
I hope you all enjoy and have a great Sunday. :)
