Happy Fourth of July!

I have made a pact with myself to make sure I cherish what it means to be free more than just this weekend and I hope you do, too. It is also a reminder of the brave men and women who give us that right every day. THANK YOU!

Here is a card to celebrate this wonderful weekend. I used some of my Webster's Pages scraps for the stars and border along the bottom. I save every piece of it :) This week I am posting the Card a Day challenges this week so head over to the FTLOA forum to check them out. This card is today's challenge...Patriotic Cards :)


Scenic Route has the best chipboard shapes and I stocked up on them. These stars are actually from the remaining piece (I used all the stars on this sheet). I figured it would make a cool mask for something.


Lots of Glimmer Mists....Blues, a touch of red and some Wheatfields.
