4th of July

I used this photo of my Mom, circa 1933, to create a 4th of July ATC. They must have been celebrating some patriotic holiday in school. I think it's a very cool picture.
It's also the first ATC I ever made. I stamped the stars in the corner from Art Impressions. Then I overstamped the sentiment from Inkadinkado. Was looking through my postage stamp ephemera when I spied this Liberty Bell which I thought went perfectly with the sentiment. I might just make more of these.
It's a day away still, but hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th of July!

Love what you did with "Mom" and be careful, ATCs can be addicting!
Have a wonderful Independence Day.

Great ATC. By the way, check out my blog as I took your suggestions to heart. Couldn't wait to finish dinner to get to work on a redo of July 1. Thanks Louise. You're a good and creative friend.
