I've been a bit remiss on making cards for Independence Day (hmmm I've made none), so with all of the 4th of July related challenges floating around the blogosphere this week, I figured I should at least make one and quickly get it in the mail.
This all came from last year's 4th of July Stash, which was perfect for the Red, White & Blue Challenge at Shopping Our Stash. My design was also inspired by this great photo at The Pink Elephant Challenge ... loved those circle stars, so I added a few rows to my design, as well as incorporating chevrons.
I love the contrast I get with the white vinyl rub-on sentiment from EAD Designs (white stamping never stands out enough for me, particularly with patterned papers) ... did you know any time you use EAD Products in one of your creations, you should link-it-up to their Customer Showcase for a chance to win some goodies.
It's a Scrap Attack at Shopping our Stash this week. And, since I had lots of patriotic scraps of paper left from my card creations last week, I decided to use them with this week's The Shabby Tea Room Inspiration Photo to celebrate Independence Day.
