"Homage to the U.S"July 4th Card


This 4th of July is kind of extra special than the others I've gone through.This past year I've learned the entire U.S History and I loved it. I feel more connected to where I live now that I know the toil and trouble it took for Americans to get this far. My parents are from Cuba and came here 38 years ago to escape communism. I am still proud to have Cuban roots but am also glad to have been born and grown in this beautiful country. So this card is just paying a bit of homage to the good ol' US of A:)
Materials:
Cricut Cartridges
Old West(Banners at the top)
Independence Day(Capitol,1776,Eagle, Independence Day)
My World(We the People Constitution paper)
Designers Calendar(July)
Storybook(4)
Jolee's Boutique(I love america sign)
K&Company Life's Journey paper
