I hope all my US readers are enjoying their holiday weekend. It is very hot and humid here in mid-Michigan, a good reason to stay inside and craft. There are a lot of challenges for patriotic/red, white and blue cards so I thought I would play along. I just got this new pad of paper from We R Memory Keepers, called Yankee Doodle. The red background and the text paper are from the pack. The stars paper is from my stash. I stamped the image from Mostly Animals with Memento Danube Blue ink onto Cryogen paper. I trimmed around the eagles wings and added the star paper behind him. I designed the card then created a Patriotic Swag with my die from Cheery Lynn Designs. The blue star embellishments are the drop outs from the swag. Finished size is 6" square.
