Let Freedom ring card made using the Art philosophy cartridge and the American Celebration stamp set.

Hello, friends!


 Today I have a card made using the Art Philosophy cartridge and the American Celebration stamp set. This stamp set is another must have stamp sets if you own Art Philosophy as it coordinates with that cartridge. Don't you just love being able to add a little dimension and fun to your cricut cuts!

This card is for today's challenge over on Bitten By the Bug 2 challenge.

I used White Daisy, Cranberry, Indian Corn Blue, and Outdoor Denim cardstock from Close To My Heart.
I used Cranberry and Indian Corn Blue ink from Close To My Heart.
I made my own patterned paper using the American Celebration stamp set as well. I love how it turned out!
For the chevron pattern at the bottom I used the In the Background stamp set.
