Horray for the red, white and blue! Happy Flag Day!

Happy Flag Day!
 
US Flag Day poster 1917.jpg
In the United States, Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on that day in 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress.
 
The United States Army also celebrates the Army Birthday on this date; Congress adopted "the American continental army" after reaching a consensus position in the Committee of the Whole on June 14, 1775.
 
In celebration of Flag Day, I had to create a card...actually the card can be used for Memorial Day, Flag and even Fourth of July!
 
I used a brand new stamp set.  I saw a version of this card on Pinterest (did you know I also have a Pinterest Page?....I DO!)
 
Anyhow...here's what I created in celebration.
 
 
I used the Swirly Bird Stamp set...it's a photopolymer stamp set of 24 stamps.  It has a coordinating thinlit, Swirly Scribbles. 

 
The stars were created using the small star punch and our Silver Glimmer Paper....love the bling!
 
The word "celebrate" was stamped using the new My Hero Stamp Set...it's the new Ronald McDonald Stamp which is super cute....
 
If you don't know, Stampin' Up! donates $3.00 for each stamp set sold to the Ronald McDonald Organization...


So go out and share your patriotic spirit today...wearing the red, white and blue!
