Blessed is the Nation...

Had some time today to make a few cards. I'll show you one today...
For this one I used ODBD's "God Bless America" again. It'll be in my collection for many, many years! I didn't use the image, but rather stamped and embossed one of the scriptures from the set. It all flew together.What do you think of the "ribbon"?
I bought 1/4 of a yard of this gingham fabric a long time ago to use with some Christmas cards when I couldn't find exactly the ribbon I was looking for. I've used it several times since by just tearing it into strips.
So, next time you're looking for a particular ribbon, check out the fabrics! Especially those ginghams!
Have a fabulous day!
I'll see you tomorrow!
