4th of July

Well I'm behind on my 4th of July cards. It has been so cold here in the NW that it hardly seems like it could nearly be the 4th....but the calendar marches on.

I got this set called July Fourth when it retired last year so this is my first chance to ink it up.  The base card is Riding Hood Red which I emobossed with the dots folder.  The blue panels are retired Night of Navy print pattern paper with a white layer underneath. The stars are stamped in Riding Hood Red and punched out with the star punch which is retiring. Today is the last day to purchase that punch from SU.  I popped up the stars on dimensionals. The sentiment, from the hostess set Afterthoughts, is also stamped in RHR.  The star bursts are stamped in Night of Navy and then I put on highlights with a Starburst Gelly Roll pen to give them a twinkle.  Well I better get this card in the mail :-)  Happy 4th everyone!
