The 4th of July is Coming Soon!

I made this card in honor of the 4th of July. I love all the holidays that honor or countries Heroes.  Men and women who do the hard but most worthy job of being in our military. Whether peace time or war they deserve our gratitude. So any time you see a soldier remember to say thank you for your service, and shake their hand, or touch their shoulder if they don't have one.

This is a really easy to do card. It is mainly layers of paper, the yellow paper has stars all over it, the blue mat is cuttlebugged, some buttons, a little gingham  ribbon and the image is from A Child's Year cartridge. I did cut some red to put on the flag the little boy is waving, and a blue star on top of the little wagon flag, it's hard to see but it's there:)
