GI Jon Riley

I made this card for SCS's Ways to Use it challenge WT207. The theme was frugal finds. Use something recycled or inexpensive. I used a lot of items that qualify. See those postage stamps? Well I've been saving them for who knows what. I think I purchased a bag of them on Ebay, not really sure, that covers the recycled part. I knew they'd come in handy some day. The Karen Foster DP was on clearance and was a whopping 30 cents. The airplane stamp was from a fellow Wish Raker and those dog tags I've had for ages. I'm not even sure where they came from. This was definitely a fun card to make.
