Simply Patriotic


Although there is just over an hour left of this 4th of July... I had to post this simple patriotic card I made using a scrap sheet of paper that I picked up as a freebie in our local scrapbooking store...I hadn't planned on this card...the pieces just sort of jumped at me ...so I followed sketch 109 at Friday Sketchers and the pieces came together...I did a little trimming by hand and  a little 'Script' CB embossing and that's about it...oh, except for the stars in the corners...I used an unused cricut cut out of a star as a stencil using a parint brush with a little versa mark and some gold perfect pearls... hope you had a safe and happy one...
