July 4th - a different look!

This year I wanted to stay away from the standard flag type cards so I decided on using iconic american images for my cards. For the first two I used the statue of Liberty as my image. The first is a card stock sticker from Pebbles Inc. overlaid on a strip star patterned paper from K& Company and edged with blue sliver lines from Mrs. Grossman's.

The second card uses a 3D sticker from Jolee's Boutique/E. K. Success of the statue of Liberty again overlaid on a pice of star patterned paper from K & Company with another card stock sticker from Pebbles Inc. as a secondary background panel with the pledge of allegiange on it.

The final card uses two card stock stickers from Pebbles, Inc as the background: a close up of a pair of jeansd and a detail of a jean pocket with patriotic buttons (okay the flag worked it's way in this one).

Hope that these simple but yet effective cards motivate you to think outside the box and create something unique for the 4th!
