Stamping in the Rain

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!
