Here's what I came up with:
And here's the banner from the Paper Players:
Can you guess how I made my fireworks? It's an old Preschool craft trick. I was reminded of it on Michelle's Crafty Morning blog. It uses drinking straws tapes together like this:
Fun, right? I had a great time stamping them!
To make the rest of the card, I used the "happy" die from the Hello You Thinlets Dies, the "July" stamp from the retired Project Life Day to Day Stamp set, and the 4 is cut using the Large Numbers Framelets Dies.
Did you notice the little silver stars? They are a new addition to the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. They are Metallic Enamel Shapes and come in gold and silver. Just the right touch to finish my card!
Now bring on the fireworks and "The Stars and Stripes Forever"!
