God Bless America

I love the images in the following kit from  my grafico crafts. I used them to create a second card for a friend who lives too far away for a visit.

Front of Card
Inside of Card

For this card, I used the My Grafico images and DP from my scrap collection. The Cuddlebug swirls embossing folder was used on the card front and a Spellbinders die cut buckles folder.Stickles were used on the stars for some "bling."On the inside, I used another Spellbinders die cut for the sentiment background. The sentiment was computer generated. There is just enough white space to write a short note and signature. 

I hope that you enjoyed your visit to this blog. Please feel free to leave a comment and/or follow this blog. (I only need 2 more followers to reach 200!!) You'll have to find out what I have in store?????
