Let Freedom Ring

This coming Thursday, July 4th, is a holiday here in the United States. Next to Thanksgiving, the Fourth of July is my favorite. It commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, which announced the separation of America from Great Britain. It is a day to celebrate the United States, its freedom, and to display patriotism and unity as a country. 

I used 3 challenges as inspiration to create this card. 

This week's CASology cue word immediately brought Independence Day celebrating to mind. (There are some really clever interpretations of the cue in the gallery for this challenge. Go take a look.)

I used Freshly Made Sketches #92 For my layout.

CAS-ual Fridays theme this week is "Hunger Games" - CFC107: Create a Clean And Simple project that features at least one arrow.  I used an arrow die from the MFT Die-namics collection - Accent it Labels and Tabs.

Stamped images are from Verve's American Hero. Images on the left are from one sheet of Authentique DP from their Glory collection.

Thank you very much for stopping in today. I really appreciate your visit.
