FF0162 God Bless the USA

Happy Tuesday, peeps! I have a fun card that I made with some new goodies, as well as some old ones! I recently got this patriotic background stamp and couldn't wait to ink it up!  Here we go:

I stamped it in Early Espresso on a Basic Beige card, then did some blending with Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Misty Moonlight, Night of Navy, Crumb Cake and Pecan Pie inks to give it a vintage look.  I diecut two stars and layered them together, then created the "USA" with Cherry Cobbler, Basic Beige and Misty Moonlight cardstock and the Mini Alphabet dies:

On the inside, I stamped two sentiments from a really old Waltzingmouse set called USA 1776 in Real Red and Misty Moonlight, then added the fireworks in Sahara Sand:

In hindsight, I wish I had shabbied up the "USA" a little bit!  But it will have to do for now!  And I think this fits the bill at Festive Friday; I've got red, white, blue, and fireworks!

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Eden is doing a little birdwatching.....can you see the bird out in the yard?

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

This is a sensational patriotic card, LeeAnne! I'm heading over to Honey Bee right now! Also, did you know that Claire Brennan is bringing back Waltzingmouse stamps? It used to be one of my favorite companies. She's on facebook with some new products.

I've always been a fan of patriotic cards, and I like how you shaded this one with inks. The star is a great accent with the bright letters of USA posted proudly front and center. Great photos of Eden and Cassidy too.
