Happy Independence Day!

Can you believe it's practically the 4th of July already?  I'm just blown away by how quickly this year has gone by!

This was a fun card to make and I love the use of the light blue and red rather than Navy for this Independence Day card.  All of the stamps are by DRS Designs.  I started by stamping the Flag of Allegiance (449L) in red ink.  Then I masked off the edges with Post-It Notes and sponged blue ink around the inside edges and matted the image with red card stock.   

I used light blue cardstock for the card front and created my own designer paper by stamping the Interlocking Stars Background (819H) with red and light blue ink.  I assembled it as shown and popped up the Happy Independence Day Greeting (822D) at the bottom of the stamped image. I placed 2 red rhinestones in the upper left corner to finish it up.

This was created for the 4th of July theme on the Chocolate, Coffee, Cards Challenge Blog. DRS Designs is giving away a $10 store voucher for this challenge. So create a 4th of July card and then run over there and link your card up for a chance to win! 

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday!
