Now let's salute this great country!

I began my card with some printables using my PIXMA iP8720 13x19 Wireless Printer.  I thought these flag brads were adorable and being able to resize them was perfect.  After printing I cut them out with ODBD's pierced circle dies and popped them up on red card stock.  I don't even think they look like I printed them!  I then layered them on some patriotic papers with more die cuts.  I kept the background white since there was so much else going on with this card.  No sentiment, since I knew I would post this after Independence Day.  It will be perfect for Labor Day or any of the Vets I know.
