Happy Fourth of July!

Well, I know it's a little early, but I love these colors!  I used Real Red and my favorite retired blue, Ballet Blue for this festive card.  The stamps are from the retired July Fourth set.  I stamped some extra stars on the background with my VersaMark ink pad and used the the Square Punches for my sentiment, as well as a bit of Silver Tinsel Trim from the retired Holiday Mini Catalog.  I hope that tinsel comes back again next year...I love it!  Oh, and I also used the back side of the pretty 3/4" polka dot grosgrain Real Red ribbon and both sizes of glue dots to attach the embellishments.  Happy Fourth of July!

Flower Garden Pastels Embossing

Here is a quick and easy card that uses the new embossing folder, Flower Garden.  I used Stampin' Pastels to color over the embossing and Pumpkin Pie and Poppy Parade markers for the sentiment (from the Full of Life set) on a Pumpkin Pie base.
