Freedom Card

Ms Mary over at  Cardz Tv posted a new segment called Super Simple.  Cards you can make in 5 minutes or so. In honor of Memorial Day, she did a card titled Freedom. So I went with that theme and recreated her card in an "Americana" vibe. Not so much a bright red white blue but a darker, deeper tone to the colors and an off white instead of white. I also ran my paper (DCWV Summer Dreams) thru the Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder and inked the edges of everything in silver. The stars and "freedom" were cut from Graphically Speaking cartridge.
I really like how it turned out. I might make a set for the July 4th holiday.

Happy Memorial weekend!!
