Born in the USA

Born in the USA

I wasn’t born in the U.S.A., but I did feel like an American 8 years ago, on September 11. Remembering those patriotic feelings (which prompted me to become a U.S. citizen the following year), I wanted to make a card featuring red, white, and blue today. It also happens to be a WICKED challenge on the SCS demo side, hosted by my friend Kristin this month.

The stamps I used are Extreme Guitar and Extreme Elements, and I added the saying with Billboard die-cut letters.

Thanks for stopping by, and God Bless America!
