July Fourth

Here in the U.S. it's Independence Day and Cards on Thursday on the Bella Blvd. blog. To celebrate, the design team has been creating lots of patriotic projects this week and today it's greeting cards. For my two cents it wasn't hard to create some very colorful and festive designs with the All American collection. 

This first card combines sticker and chipboard flowers in a collage, accented with a little flag and pretty polka dot ribbon.

More ribbon, another mini flag, a large star die, washi tape and chipboard alphas went into my second card. I do love texture and making big bows helps accomplish that!

Christopher is so excited about our bonfire/cookout tonight and fireworks. Keep your fingers crossed that it doesn't rain on his parade! It's been raining daily here in NC and feeling a lot like a rain forest...very humid! We've got a 70% chance of thunder storms predicted for the afternoon, but it's supposed to be clear by 9:00 p.m.

Enjoy your Fourth!

I'm hoping your holiday was all fun! We had the days and days of rain here so I definitely know what you mean about the whole "rainforest" thing! It almost feels like a drought since we haven't had rain since yesterday morning! Wacky! Thanks for sharing your fun card!
