5x7 Altered discontinued Formica Sample

A Soldiers Mom had this prayer up on her bulletin board. I borrowed it, copied it and have made several of these Altered Formica Samples using this prayer.

I punched 1 inch circles to go behind the buttons and layered them on the side with gold cord knotted through the holes.

I used the certainly celery ribbon and hung a little charm that looks like a very mini soldiers dog tag and 3 charms: "U S A" hanging by gold cord from the ribbon.

The Prayer is layered on Certainly Celery then Rose Red then onto the formica sample with dimensionals between each layer.

A Soldier's Prayer
Oh God, please send me guidance,
Strength and courage from above,
As I stand ready to defend
The Country that I love.
Help my loved ones left behind
And give them courage too,
To support me and to understand
the work that I must do.
Watch over me and all my buddies
on native soil or foreign lands,
for do matter where we're stationed,
we are always in your hands.
R.K. Cecil 1991
