Stars And Stripes

Hello My Friends,

Today I would like to show you a 4th of July card I made using my Cameo Silhouette.  I saw this silhouette of Betsy Ross in the Silhouette Store and had to have her.  



I love the story of Betsy Ross sewing away on the first American flag while George Washington waited impatiently for it to be finished.

Recipe for card

"When the trees their summer splendor
Change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns mellow,
And the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
And the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is autumn,
Loveliest season of the year."
- Carol L. Riser, Autumn
