Patriotic - Sending you a little prayer . . .

- that God will keep you in his care.
(Inside & Out stamp set #2)
Hello my crafty friends!  I was so inspired by all of the projects you have entered in my 'Seeing Stars' challenge, that I thought I would make a patriotic card too.  :)

Click HERE to enter the challenge!
I didn't use my Cricut on this card at all (gasp!). The die-cut tag is from Tattered Angels (custom cutouts rockin renaissance).  I inked the tag with Ranger Distress Ink (Walnut and Aged Mahoganey).  The eagle and the stars were pre-embossed on the tag and made to resist the ink (pretty cool!)

I used Navy Blue Crinkle Ribbon and my hand dyed Vintage Cherry Bakers Twine.  The paper is Crate Paper (red, tan scallop), My Little Shoebox (brown polka dot), and Bazzill (Solid blue).  

The stamped sentiment is from the Inside & Out #2 Stamp Set.  The button is from Fancy Pants Designs.
