Stars and Stripes

It's Memorial Day here in the US - a day to celebrate all of the sacrifices made by our military service men, women, and their families.  I created a quick and simple card today, using a new Appetizer set from Gourmet Rubber Stamps called Happy Independence.  I really love the fireworks image, and the cluster of stars.  I inked up the flag with two different colors and sponged around the edges after stamping, to give it an aged look.

My papers and this fun stamp set (along with a huge selection of other goodies from Gourmet Rubber Stamps) are available over at i {heart} papers! And through today, to celebrate Memorial Day weekend, use the coupon code goarmy for 15% off your entire order of $40 or more. And, please put a note if you're a military spouse, active duty or vet so she can throw a little extra gift in your package as an extra thank you!! Happy shopping!
