Create With Connie & Mary Thursday Challenge ~ 4th of July

It's time for a new challenge at Create with Connie & Mary, a challenge calling for the 4th of July theme! I'm so excited to join Connie & Mary as we share our "Stampin' Up! lovin', challenge lovin' and blog postin' fun" over the next few months. Thanks, Connie & Mary!

For my card, I used a variety of elements including sewing, gathered ribbon, die-cut and embossed stars, button & twine, and a little sentiment that includes chipboard.

I had a lot of fun making this card, wanting to use a variety of my favorite Stampin' Up! products....LOVE our DSP, ribbon, buttons, Big Shot dies & impressions folders...together they make a rockin' card! Happy 4th everyone!

Looking forward to seeing your creations over at Create with Connie & Mary:)

Stamps: Rough Type (Summer Mini)
Paper: Shimmer White, Not Quite Navy, Riding Hood Red CS, Bella Bleu DSP
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Crumb Cake
Other: chipboard, ribbon, button (retired), Big Shot, Square Lattice Impressions Folder, Stars #2 Die, Linen Thread
