Cards With an Americana Twist

I'm here to share a few cards for the end of summer.  
It's  the unofficial end to Summer and back to school time for many - the transition to cooler weather.

In the United States, our summers end with one last festive holiday at the beginning of September - Labor Day.  Labor Day is a wonderful day to relax with the family, have a picnic, watch a parade, or just enjoy time off from work.  

I used the collection from  Maja Design called, Denim & Friends  paired with some dies from Spellbinders to celebrate Labor Day with some cards that resemble old fashioned  "flag buntings" in my opinion.  I love how a magnificent collection from Sweden and a little imagination with Spellbinders dies can help me celebrate Americana style.    

are the particular papers I selected for this card. 
I used the following: 
Stars & Stripes (A & B sides) - shown on the top row

The die I used as a bunting is Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Venise Lace - Bella Clair Border by Becca Feeken.  Look how beautiful it is as a flag bunting?

Here is the second card using the same papers.  I added a bit of red cardstock behind the Spellbinders die for a bold pop of color. and I added the Spellbinders Nestabilities Stars Five die.  It's a classic star shape which I consider a staple in my die collection.
