One Nation Under God!!!

Morning all, we finally got power back on after one heck of a wind storm last night, it was scary for a while, but we survied!!  And before I forget, I lost 2 whole pounds last week, 12 from goal weight now!!!!  This is the card I made for Joan's challenge #24 this week, she ask that we:
Create a Celebration card

Use Red, White and Blue
Use Stripes
Use a Tag
I didn't have any striped paper that would work so see what I did, I made my stripes using several Martha Stewart punches.  The tag is Spellbinders fancy Tage 2, the stamp is from biblical Impressions.  Hope it;s okay, if not thats okay too, it was still fun to make.  Yall have a good one and stay cool!
