Happy Fourth of July!

I was inspired by another demonstrator, Carla Bazhenow, to make this cute Patriotic card! Mine has a few different things than hers, but it's pretty much the same idea. Overall, I love the clean lines of the card. But I especially love the heart as the backdrop of the star!

I added the Rhinestone jewel for some much needed sparkle for the Fourth of July! And I also added the White Taffeta ribbon to 'cutsie' it up a bit!

The heart layers are the Heart of Hearts Embosslit layered with the Full Heart punch. The star layers are from the Stars #2 Big Shot die. The designer papers are from the Designer Series Paper Patterns Packs. - I really like how those paper packs are an easy pick when you want something a little extra than just plain cardstock. The patterns are simple, but usually just enough!

And here's a closer look at the sentiment. It's kind of subtle - but just what I wanted! The 'celebrate' comes from the Fabulous Phrases set, and it's stamped with Real Red on Real Red Pattern Pack papers.

I hope you have fun celebrating the Fourth!!

AWE Julie you did Carla proud! I really like what you did with the hearts and the little 'celebrate' at the bottom was a nice touch as well. Very nice!
