Star-Spangled Celebrate Card

It's been a long time since I've sang the Star-Spangled Banner. We used to sing it in grade school, a very long time ago.  Do you remember the lyrics???

Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

 
We are approaching the Fourth of July here in the United States and the inspiration for my card today was our flag. This Star-Spangled Celebrate Card has some broad stripes and bright silver stars to ignite your patriotic spirit. The stars were cut with the Cricut machine and I added some stitching for detail. The colors are Pacific Point and Whisper White from Stampin' Up! and the red stripe paper is by Recollections. The celebrate sentiment is from the TPC Studios greetings stamp set and I punched it out using my oval punches from Stampin' Up!. The final touch was a few rhinestones for some bling around the sentiment. Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific day!
