You Are Not Forgotten

I am uploading two cards tonight.  Only had time for a little bit of stamping this evening but I was so excited to use my new stamps from Our Daily Bread :  Old Flag Background and Not Forgotten.
On the first card I used  S/U Brilliant Blue  Real Red. Straight stitch around perimeter and each stripe section.
On this next card I used S/U Night of Navy and Real Red and zig-zaged each stripe section.

Not sure which way I like best. But they were both fun to do.  I know I will keep experimenting with these sets.  I love them and so great for the cards I sent to Operation Write Home.
