Happy 4th

Hiya and hello crafty peeps! I got a couple cards made just because and here's one of them:

I used a neglected punch for the stripes and some grunged up papers to give the flag a more rustic look. I even took vintage photo DI to the blue panel to age it. After all the work I did layering the stripes, I didn't want to cover it up, so I stamped and die cut the sentiment banner out of vellum. With some strategically placed navy buttons, I adhered it with foam dots.

And now, for some patriotic music:

You're welcome for that ear worm. ☺ Have a great day!
