Happy 4th!


I had this idea brewing for several days and finally finished this card this morning. Asked my hubby what he thought it was and I was so happy when he said "Fireworks"!

I white embossed the Row of Houses and various flowers from the Buds & Stems set and ink distressed with Chipped Sapphire distress ink. I added some white dots with the Sharpie poster paint pen and added a red ribbon to finish off the patriotic theme.

Hope you all have a safe and Happy 4th of July!

Stamps: Hero Arts
Cardstock: Neenah Solar White
Ink: Versamark, Chipped Sapphire distress ink
Other: White embossing powder, Sharpie poster paint pen,
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, pop dots, ribbon
