Star Spangled America

Well, things didn't progress quite the way I planned yesterday. I did get a card finished but the Stickles just didn't dry so I couldn't photograph the card until this evening. Tom decided yesterday that he would help clean the house so who was I to argue when he volunteered. So we spent a big part of the day getting the house back in shape. It's been a long couple weeks with the surgery and then day camp. So the house was pretty much a disaster area. But I am thrilled we found the time to get a few things done. So, now that we have that cleared up, here's my card!


Happy Birthday America! I have to get my cards ready to send out for the 4th of July. So I chose this set from Doodle Pantry called Fireworks Birdie to make my card. The bird is popped up off the branch with pop dots. I used the already colored version of the image but added lots of Stickles to the fireworks to make them pop off the page. I also added Stickles to the leaves and bird wings. This card really sparkles! The sentiment is also from the same set. The red background isn't embossed but the paper has a texture to it.

I am entering these challenges:
Now if you haven't seen the announcement over on the right hand side of my blog you might want to check out the big celebration over at the Outlawz this week. We are celebrating 2000 members and there are lots of prizes to be won. Don't miss your chance to play along and win. Check out the YouTube video made especially for the party. Let the fun begin!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope to be back with more creations this week. It feels good to be back to crafting.

Thanks for playing at The Outlawz 2000 Member party. Did you hear that we are extending the party for another week? That means more time to complete the challenges. Not only that, but a SCACD $50.00 Gift Certificate is going to the member who enters the most challenges. Happy partying. :)

Hi Donna, your card is adorable! Congrats on being our first entry too, Yay number one.
I've always wondered if little birds sit and watch the fireworks too, it seems they have the best seat in the house...lol, seriously they probably fly away because of all the noise citing "it must be that patriotic or celebratory time of the year again, ugh!"
