Proud to be an American!

Flourishes Friday Focus today is about our Patrotism on Parade set. With the Fourth of July just next week it is perfect. This card only took me about 10 minutes to make. GASP! I know and it turned out so fun and cute. The red ruffled gingham ribbon at the top was a little swatch piece I had left over from another card I made sitting on the table. My pennants are using scraps of paper from the bin and just cut out the ends to make it look like a pennant, layered those over each other and added a few brads. Tie my sentiment off with the bakers twine and voila!

Hi Stacy, I've just discovered you're blog, I looked back a few posts and thought I'd say your cards are wonderful.
I was reading about the awful weekend you had worrying about poor Ranger. He is a very beautiful dog. I hope and pray he'll be okay.
btw, I've signed up to follow your blog now too, and look foward to browsing older posts too.
Your lovely red,white,& blue card is very patriotic. Have a happy 4th of July, from Alexandra in Scotland UK
