God bless America!

I made this for this weeks FCCB challenge!  Go here to check out all the details of the challenge.  

I used Stand and Salute for the border at the bottom and cut it out twice and used the shadow feature for the white behind it.  For the blue strip I used my gypsy and George to make a long rectangle to cut off the blue arches so I didn't have to by hand.   The boy and the wagon are from A child's year.  I cut off the flag he was holding and cut a flag from Stand and Salute using my gypsy to size it correctly.  Then I added the stars from the George cartridge using the silhouette feature. 

It is currently hanging up in my hallway, but after the 4th I plan on adding 3 4x4 pics to it and making it a scrapbook page.  It really will work for both.  Simple and yet so cute!  Thanks for looking!
