May Craft Challenge: GREETING CARDS

On June 19th, 1865, federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas to take control of the state and ensure that all enslaved people be freed. This action gave way to Juneteenth – also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day, Liberation Day, and Emancipation Day which is a holiday celebrating the emancipation of African Americans enslaved in the United States.
During this challenge, we want to see how you use your creativity to celebrate OUR freedom holiday!
