Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day to all of my US readers! I am lucky enough to be on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog on this super fun holiday (The 4th of July is one of my absolute favorites, actually) and I have a fun, patriotic card to celebrate!

Awesome Flag

I pulled out a few different sets to create my fun flag design. I love how it is whimsical and artistic and just plain FUN! I used one of the flowers from Wallflower to create the star field and then used a super fun border from Countdown to create the dancy pantsy stripes. (Yup, that's what we're calling it. Because I want to, that's why. And it's my blog and I get to make these decisions. For reals, though. Dancy pantsy.) I used post it tape to mask off the areas while stamping. The sentiment is from my favorite sentiment set, Wait for It. If you don't yet own this stamp I am concerned. Very, deeply concerned. You should have that checked.

Awesome (detail)

A few sequins add to the celebratory feel of this card, along with the embossed sentiment on the wavy banner. It's just a happy-let's-have-a-party kind of card. So go ahead... have a PARTY! Happy Independence Day!
