Quick Red, White & Blue Language of Friendship Card

Today is Memorial Day in the US when we honor those who’ve given their lives in service for their country.  I’m sharing a red, white and blue card for you.  This is a quick card that I made with two stamp sets that Stampin’ Up! will be retiring next week, Language of Friendship and Friendly Phrases.  My card was inspired by the CAS-ual Fridays 102 Red, White and Blue Challenge.
