Thanking Our Forefathers

Hello Everyone and welcome to another week of inspiration from The Ribbon Carousel Crew! 
This month we are celebrating! In particular, we are celebrating our heritage, so show us your country pride, celebrate your heritage or just celebrate! Play along with us and you could win a Ribbon Carousel!
As those of us from the U.S. just got through celebrating the 4th of July, we have seen plenty of red, white and blue in the galleries lately!  While I love these patriotic colors, I decided to go a different route, and chose neutrals~

 My main image is from Our Craft Lounge.  The ink blot is from Stampin' Up's new Gorgeous Grunge set. I wanted to evoke a feel of 1776 on the card, so I used a strip of muslin to create a ruffle, hopefully resembling the cloth/clothing of the time period.  I wrapped some linen thread round the center of the ruffle.   

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed week!  Let Freedom Ring!
