4th of July Honor for Servicemen

     HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY HOLIDAY!

      This gorgeous image of our flag was released by MHK Designs just in time for the Fourth and I decided to use it as a way to say Thanks to all our service people who protect us and serve in the Armed Forces.  What better way to celebrate the birth of our country?



     I used my Koh-I-Noor pencils to color the flag and add the shadow, then die cut it with my stitched circle die set (Die-namics) to cut it and the sentiment.  I also cut the navy blue background with a stitched circle die and inset the flag into it.

     I wrapped the card with twine before adding the sentiment and, after that, decided to leave it very CAS.

     I hope you've had a wonderful, long weekend and I get home late today.  Then I get to face all the laundry, unpacking, and basic household chores that didn't get done while I was gone.  Once finished with that, I can start my weekly routine and rest up from my vacation.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
