Happy Friday!
I hope y'all had a great 4th of July holiday! These DRS images are perfect for patriotic holidays but also for saying "thanks" to those who served or are still in the service. Thanks to them, we have a USA!

For my card, I started with the circle of stars and die cut it. The first part of the USA greeting and used a technique I call "Nestie resizing" to die cut it. The original shape was much larger, but I resized it to fit my USA. The big star behind it is also a die cut.

The blue background was stamped with the interlocking stars with denim ink for a tone on tone look. The red and white layers were pieces I had on the table and by themselves, weren't big enough but together they made a nice layer. I bet you have some left over pieces laying around. Sometimes it makes things interesting to use odd size pieces.

The second half of the greeting was inked with markers and I used a tag to die cut it. The finished card measures 4.25 x 5.50

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend and if you see a man or woman in uniform, give them a pat on the back and a hearty "Thank You". They deserve it!
