Your a Grand Old Flag


I have to tell you, I had nothing but fun making this card. I this this image is adorable...it is a Mo Manning digi. I have a good friend, whose birthday is in July and I made this card for her. In June we have a "Cherry Festival". At one time it was a celebration of the orchards in our valley. Unfortunately, they have all been pulled out and housing subdivisions now take the place of the orchards. Anyway, we have a week of festivities, including an old fashioned parade. Most of the little kids sit along the curbs of our Main street and wait for candy to be thrown to them. It is great fun and brings out crowds of people. Ok... back to my card....I used the LOTV mini tags for my sentiment...I am really enjoying those tags. I also added some brad pin wheels, a double ribbon  and lots of paper lace. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: "Your A Grand Old Flag"
You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev'ry heart beats true
'neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.
