Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July to all my USA blog pals! I hope you can (or did) spend today with family and friends being thankful for what we have the USA! Eat too much BBQ, laugh too hard and squeeze someone you love!

This is my final sample using the ISC Memories of Patriotism stamp set.

Patriotic Thanks:
A close up of the smaller tag:Close up of Dog Tag:

The nation silhouette is covered with distressed stickles, the dog tag is faux metal using copper EP. There are other copper touches throughout the tag - stitching, stars, smaller tag back panel, brad and of course the dog tag and chain.

Happy 4th!
