Happy 4th of July! :-)





I know, it's a bit early, and in fact, I was thinking of making a card for memorial day with my fav. "mouse", I ended up making a card for "4th of July" after me finding a nice DP which says "4th of July"! Well, time is FLYING (as usual!), so before you know it, it'll be July 4th! lol :-) I made this card, from the sketch at this week's Inspirational Card sketches "116" challenge. I'm also submitting to Simon Says Challenge, for this week's theme "Stars & Stripes". Great timing, Perfect! :-)

4 stars on 4 corners are trimmed from the embossed red & dark blue papers, which I used cuttlebug embossing folder for, then, attached to the 4 circle die cuts. Those & main image are attached to the CS by dimentional glue foams to give more depth to the card. Other 4 circles are attached by regular glue (flat). You can see them on the 2nd picture. The upper right corner circle & lower left corner circle are made from my stash. I heat embossed the US flag image about a year ago. I found this in my stash, punched the circles out from the US flag image, and used them in this card. Other circles are punched out from DPs.
