Time to Celebrate the 4th


Hello! How quickly June has gone.  We will soon be celebrating the 4th with picnics, cookouts, parades and fireworks.   I pulled out some old Verve stamps from American Hero set to create a Patriotic card for the upcoming holiday.  I used SU Brilliant Blue, Kraft, and White cardstocks with Memento Love Letter and Danube Blue inks, Nesties Circle Dies, Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Die, and Cuttlebug EF Stars.  I heat embossed the Star with Gold EP.

Challenges:
Pals Paper Arts: PPA 257 Challenge is a sketch challenge
Retro Rubber Challenge: Challenge 17 Get Fired Up!  Use 4th of July as Inspiration. Verve Stamps were won a few years ago.
The Kraft Journal Challenge: #229 CAS Patriotic
Simon Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes



What are your plans for the 4th? Have a safe holiday.
  I love reading your comments. Theresa
