Star Spangled Birthday

Around here, June is a month full of celebrations — several birthdays, an anniversary, and Father’s Day — so I’ve been busy making cards. A couple of weeks ago, I posted a sneak peak of the image for my husband’s birthday card.  With his birthday rapidly approaching, it’s time to put a card together for him.

To some, this image would probably make more sense for a July birthday. However, my husband is an NPS park ranger and he spends his days teaching the public about the history of the American flag. So this seemed like an appropriate birthday image for him despite the strong July 4th connotation.
