God Bless America

It's almost release day at Digiments, and today I get to show a card I made using one of the Digiments that will be a part of the June release. One of my favorite things is combining the digital aspect with regular stamping. I don't look at digital as an "all or nothing" approach. I think that it's fun to incorporate digital into a card (it's easy!), and if you're wanting to after that, you can always add some stamping too. It's just another way to add a little variety to life! And you still have today and tomorrow to download any of the freebies that you've seen and make a card with them. It's a win/win. You get something free, and a chance to win more stuff for free! Plus, Michelle is offering a "Doorbuster Deal" with this release, so be sure to check out the site bright and early Saturday morning. I love the song "God Bless America" and was so excited to use it on a card. My daughter requests I play this video on YouTube all the time, and she belts it out along with Martina McBride (one of my favorite singers ever). Just listening to that song always gives me the chills.

Digiment: Patriotism
Stamps: SU Love It
Ink: Colorbox Frost White
CS: PTI Pure Poppy, PTI Soft Stone, Random Blue

Rebecca! Love the card you made to showcase the digiment! So patriotic and I too love that song and always get teary eyed every time I hear it. Looks like you've got the next American Idol on your hands there! *wink*

I love this digiment! I like how you changed the font color to be blue. It looks nice with the buttons on the bottom too!

What a terrific, patriotic card. I like how your sentiment is the focal point and you added the stars and buttons to bring home the theme.
