Happy 4th of July!
Happy Independence Day!!!! I hope everyone has a great holiday with family and friends! Of course , I had to make a patriotic card and use the beautiful Authentique paper pad, Glory. Ooohhh, it's so pretty, even though I cut off the distressed edges. What? Yeah, I don't care for very distressed edges. Crazy, right?
I was pressed for time because I'm leaving/ or already left for Block Island, R.I. I will schedule this to post in the future. Since I was packing I needed to make a relatively quick card where I didn't need to color an image. ( I'm slow so NO card of mine is ever quick, LOL!!!)
So I decided to let the paper do the work and use this great sketch from The Sweet Stop Challenge 165. All the paper is from Authentique plus the Bazzill Kraft and the PTI cream CS. I cut 2 ovals with the small and large petite ovals from Spellbinders. I added a few panels and a strip that was edge punched. Some blue and white bakers twine was layered on beige satin ribbon with a cute red heart button that was waiting to be used on the perfect occasion. The left upper corner was adorned with a few gems. I picked up a new TPC patriotic stamp set at Michael's and used the word "proud".
