Celebrate the USA!

I love the Independence Day; maybe having lived and loved living in Europe for 9+ years has simply given me a deeper appreciation of what this country is. So, let's celebrate together!

Before I go on I want to thank Melissa and Kristy from Created From Color for an amazing Copics class. They are excellent instructors. I am still learning, but I am no longer afraid to use those expensive markers! You ladies rock! 
Wryn the Patriot digital stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil
Copic markers
Gold glitter gel pen
MTC software (or similar)
Martha Stewart edge punch
I rock Heat Set tool and gems
Assorted glues

This is really a straight forward card. But the twist in today's post comes with the papers. I designed them! (Giggles!)  If you would like them, I share! They are *.png files usable in any graphic program and should print at 6" square from your home computer. They are also usable in MTC as Textures. To download, simply click on the image. 

Thanks for visiting. I hope you and yours have a wonderful and safe holiday!
