We don't have any big plans or cookouts to go to today but our flag is out flying proudly and I have on my favorite Red/White/Blue shirt in honor of our Independence Day!  God Bless all the men & women who continue to fight the fight that we can continue to be free!  And with that in mind, I also wanted to create a card for the occasion so here goes . . .


This was a very quick card but I love how it turned out!

I created the background panel using Tim Holtz Oxide Distress Inks ...  Faded Jeans & Fired Brick.  I simply smudged some onto my craft mat ... spritzed with water and using a wide bristle artist brush created the alternating stripes.  Dried with heat gun ... sprinkled with water & dabbed off with cloth.    PERFECT!

I've had this silhouette image in my stash for quite some time ... it's from the internet, and added the words using Word10 before printing.  Die cut using the Tutti Designs 'Nesting Stitched Rectangle' dies then matted with black card stock.  The only embellishment is Memory Box 'Beloved Stars'

It's SIMPLE ... but SAYS IT ALL!
