Happy Fourth of July

Evening Folks -

Well the best laid plans don't always go the way you plan. I had hoped to have this card posted by this morning, but I was struggling with the papers and finding what I wanted. So I am getting in my Fourth of July card in just under the wire (midnight eastern time)!!

I was stalking Shelby's blog and too a liking to a Mayzy Arts digi so I decided to click on her link and found a couple of images that I really liked. My favorite stamp companies don't really carry anything to celebrate the fourth. I wanted to this...I hope you like what I've come up with.

Fourth-of-July

I totally loved coloring this little beauty. I went through all the digital paper that I had from Cupcake Craftroom and I found the red striped paper in one pack and the stars in another. I was tickled!! I also used the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #162 for the basis of my card. I would also like to enter my card for the following challenges: 
*  Paper Playtime: Die cut + Red, white and blue


I hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July. Thanks to all the men and women in our Armed Services who continue to fight for our freedom. 

Have an awesome evening. 

Theresa

Oooo, I love Shelby's blog, too! This card is fantastic. I love the layered stars--they look 3-dimensional. And your coloring on that cutie is fab. I recently discovered Cupcake Craftroom, myself. I need to head back over there and find that star paper--it's so pretty.
