Independence Day

Today's card is for an American friend - I make him one every year to celebrate the 4th of July. This year's is a graphic interpretation of the Star Spangled Banner...


I die-cut 3 circles then cut the red and the blue ones to make the stripes and blue quarter. The stars are also die cut and I couldn't resist some bling in the form of the red gems.

I've entered this card into the challenges at:

Less Is More - red, white and blue
Brown Sugar - red, white and blue
Crafty Creations - red, white and blue
Dies R Us - stars and stripes
Addicted To CAS - patriotic

Thanks for looking and enjoy your 4th July celebrations
