Happy Birthday USA

As we celebrate this day, let's remember all those who are serving in the military who help to keep us free. 
Here are a couple cards I made yesterday  - will be sending them to our heroes via Operation Write Home.

I used the same stamp in both but in totally different styles. The challenge at  Blog Named Hero
gave me that idea.   Here is the first one using the sketch at Sentimental Sundays

The sketch I used:
The stamp is by Our Daily Bread set "Not Forgotten" 
 CS = GKD Red Hot, SU "Not Quite Navy, and Kraft by Kraft Outlet
Ribbon = Reasonable Ribbon
Silver  Brads

The second card:
 Sketch is at Seems a Little Sketchy
Kraft CS from Kraft Outlet
Twine - Baker's
