Now The Queen created this adorable card
using Lacey Label and Graphically Speaking Cricut Cart

with it RED, WHITE & Blue colors

 Base of the card was cut using Kraft card stock and
The Queen inked around the edges
with matching inks from both Tim Holtz
distressing inks and stampin up inks.
The Queen used her Royal White Gel Pen
to highlight the FREEDOM which she also
raised up on mounting tape. 
This banner was cut from Formal Occasions Cricut Cart
and sentiment stamps are from

I love the way you linked the sentiment with the cut.

Beautiful card!! I love that cut from Graphically Speaking!

Ellen Jarvis said...

I'm confused ... I saw that cut on a card earlier and she said it was from Plantin Schoolbook, and now I read comments it's from Graphically Speaking. Hmmm. Must go explore. LOVE IT, Queen T.
