Happy Birthday America!





I cannot believe that the 4th of July is next weekend! Seems like summer is just starting, the 4th hits, then BAM! back to school will be here before you know it!

Using some old papers that have been lying around in a pile, these papers were perfect for creating the card that I wanted to today to CELEBRATE the upcoming holiday. Perfect for the CARDS Blog challenge: 4th of July.

Here are the other challenges that I was able to meet:

Card Positioning Systems #173 sketch (turned sideways)
Paper Sundaes: create a birthday card (happy birthday America!)
Stampin' Sisters in Christ: #45, use stripes on the card (on the DP, swirling like a flag in the breeze...)
Stamptacular Sunday Challenges: #65, to use stars and stripes on your card

come back tomorrow for 2 more cards that I made for blog challenges......
