Happy Birthday, America

     Although I do lots of cards to honor veterans and serving military, I rarely do 4th of July cards unless there's a special request.  No request was made for this card; I simply fell in love with this sweet Sunbonnet image from Bugaboo Stamps.  Obviously, this called for a red, white, and blue color combo.


     This is a single layer card with the image and sentiment printed at the bottom of the card stock sheet which, when folded, becomes the card front on a tent card.   You have to trim it down to the proper width for your card size.   I used ProMarkers to color her.  The decorative corners are made with a Cheery Lynn die and they are the only embellishment.  Extremely CAS.

     We're closer to the weekend than we were on Monday and, hard as it is to believe, nearly half-way through the year!  Holy Cow, how did that happen?    Well, in any case, Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
