PATRIOTIC CARD

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY

Hope everyone is enjoying their day. 
To celebrate Independence Day I have made this card. 

I used the sketch from Die Cuttin Diva's and the inspiration photo from Pink Elephant. Simon Says Stamp and Bitten By the Bug 2  challenges this week are red, white and blue and a patriotic theme. Needless to say I am entering this card into these challenges.
To make this card I used my Rosettes and Ribbons Cricut cartridge. I cut the rosette at 1.5". The paper I used is open cardstock from Joann's.  The red and white striped paper is from Echo Park "Dots and Strips". I used red corragated paper from Coredinations in the middle of the rosette and for my large strips. I color washed them with white paint.  The USA are Thickers glitter blue stickers. I outlined the label in red Stickles.
The red, white and blue beads are from Wal Mart. I strung them on red hemp. The white star is a brad. I made this card so it opens on the side. I rounded the corners with my EK Success corner punch. 

I think my card is very patriotic and celebrates the 4th of July perfectly.

Join me in the above challenges and Good Luck.
Bye, Bye for Now
