“Celebrating Freedom” Card

Soon we will be celebrating our nation’s 235th birthday as the United States of America!

Most Americans will probably celebrate by having family barbecues or picnics at the park with hot dogs, hamburgers, cole slaw, and baked beans.  They might also see a fantastic fire works display.  I was inspired to make this patriotic red, white, and blue card for a family member.  I added the ladybug and daisies to bring in the picnic aspect of July 4th celebrations.  As we celebrate the gift of freedom in our own unique ways, may everyone be blessed and remember these important words from the Declaration of Independence:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Have a safe and happy Fourth of July!
