HAPPY JULY 4TH

I made this card for the Delightful Sketch Challenge. This is their first challenge, be sure and check them out. The stamp is from The Craft Lounge and the DP is Rock Star a Daisy Bucket Design. With fireworks exploding, I thought this would make a perfect shaker card. I am also entering this card in the ABC challenge , Stamp Something, Charisma Cardz Challenge, Allsorts Challenge, Cute Card Thursday, and Cafe Mojo.

The image is stamped, heat embossed and colored with Copics. The picture doesn't show it very well, but I used a Spica pen on the fireworks to add a touch of glitter. The beads are red, blue, and gold.


The DP is so pretty and perfect for the 4th, the inside didn't need any extras, other than a place to write a short note. The curly ribbon adds a nice touch.

Don't forget you have until midnight July4th to enter the blog candy giveaway.

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think of this card.

Thank you for viewing and HAVE A WONDERFUL JULY 4TH !!!!
