I hope you are all out enjoying some time in the sun with family and friends! We were lucky enough to attend a couple of outdoor parties this long holiday weekend. One celebrating an 80th birthday and another one for a 6 year old. How's that for running the gamut? lol!
So, since it's the nations birthday today too, I thought I would show off this stamp-y card made with one of the newly released stamps from DRS Designs.
Freedom Cannon is among the newest stamps, and I made my background papers using the Starry background stamp, inked in red, yellow and blue. That was really fun to create, I think I always just use this stamp for Christmas cards. Then the bottom portion was created with the Woven Plaid stamp, also in navy ink.
I used a couple of gel pens on the fireworks, but it didn't seem spectacular enough, so out came the Stickles and a few gems.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you had a great Fourth of July. And for all my Canadian friends, I think it was Canada Day over there this weekend, so I hope you had a wonderful day as well :)
Now, for tomorrow and Wednesday, yes TWO days, I will be posting over at the DRS Designs blog, so you can pop by over there and check out more of my handiwork using some of their newest stamps!
Thanks for dropping by!
