Wonderful news!! My friend is finally a U.S. citizen! She has passed all her tests that would probably challenge my knowledge of this country. She is so proud to be an American and I am so proud of her. I am just beaming right now!! So, naturally why not celebrate with a card!!
I took the Paper Players challenge #228 to heart while making this card. I wanted my card to scream HOORAY!! The exaggerated punched stars and the wooden 'U.S.A.' sentiment I think did the trick..
The 'tattered' flag look. I achieved by ripping strips of red and white paper then distressing them for an aged look. The wooden letters were left unfinished and distressed just a bit to add texture. With all this craziness I left the blue part of the flag a rectangle to add some structure and slightly distressed the edges.
So here we are and I hope you like it!

I just love the way this card turned out.. But more importantly, I am proud to know what it represents. My friend is a U.S. citizen and America is lucky to have her in our ranks. God Bless my friend and God Bless America!
