God Bless America


Create Along With Us is our opportunity to be inspired by all
the talent at PapertreyInk during release week.
So much inspiration and creativity, it's always hard to pick
one to 'CASE'. 
This month, being close to the 4th of July, I thought Melissa's 
beautiful art piece could be adapted to a card for our 
Independence Day.


Melissa used the new stamps, and new color being released tomorrow.
I loved her layout of 4 postage stamped images, with a center button.


Red, White and blue instead of the frosty pastels Melissa used, but they fit my theme.
Stamped stars from Simple Stars, on die cut 1 1/2" Limitless Layers Squares.
I stamped the circle in Pure Poppy from Red, White & Blue, and layered it with 
the pinked circle from Limitless Layers Circles.
Sentiment white embossed from: Keep It Simple: Bless the USA.
Star Button: A Flair for Buttons.
PTI Inks: Pure Poppy, Blueberry Sky, Enchanted Evening, and Americana


Inside, some fireworks from Red, White & Blue.

Thank you for visiting, and happy crafting!

  2. After the tragedy in Orlando, your God Bless America card says it all. Nancy, it's beautifully done - inside and out. Love the new Americana color...it's on my wish list (along with loads of other goodies).
