Tribute to Pearl Harbor- Pixie Dust Studio Challenge "The Pearl"

This is my tribute to all of our men and women who were involved in World War II, especially during the attack on Pearl Harbor.  Kathy created this fabulous image and more at  Pixie Dust Studio!
Copics Used
I went shopping and picked out DP especially for this image.  My mom and dad were both in the military during World War II.  I actually "borrowed" a U.S. pin from my mother's uniform for my card (I promise I will return it!).  I'd like to show you a picture of my mom in uniform, she was a nurse in the Army Nurse Corps.  I'm just sorry I don't have a photo of my dad to share.   Love you mom and dad!
Thanks for visiting,  I'll be sharing more of "The Pearl" with you this week!

BTW, this will make a great BD card for my son-in-law in Afghanistan - entered in OCC challenge and Shabby Tea Room challenge
