Happy Birthday USA

YES I am seriously addicted to this paper
can't believe I have had it for so long and never used it
this is Kraft card stock from PTI A2 size
the Forth of July is another form the Soft Spoken package
I inked this as well to make it more vintage
added the blue square DCWV card stock
and a few stars cut from George and Basic Shapes
I printed the banner on the computer
and a little red stickles and some faux stitching
entering in a few challenges
