Happy Independence Day

Hello and Happy 4th of July! I hope you are having a nice day! I spent a little time cleaning, and a little time in my craft room today. This evening we are going down the street for a traditional family gathering. I found what looks to be a tasty Feta Dip on Pinterest I will be making to bring.
While I had a little extra time in my craft room today, I decided to whip up a little card to honor today. I cannot take 100% credit for the idea for this card. I remember maybe last year? seeing Amber from Damask Love using her Botanical Silhouettes dandelion flowers to make fireworks, so I decided to give it a whirl, since I have no actual fireworks stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Oh, and a little tip I heard before I go...I heard if you blow one of your hands off with fireworks, you get an extra day off work! ;-) Sick, I know. I do have a bit of a twisted sense of humor!

Supplies: (All Papertrey Ink, unless otherwise noted)
Paper: Enchanted Evening, Stamper's Select
Stamps: Botanical Silhouette's, Happy Day
Dies: Happy Day
Ink: Pure Poppy, Enchanted Evening
Other: Star Dust Stickles by Ranger

Great card. I do remember that post about using those dandelions for fireworks. I thought about doing it, but you actually did it, so kudos to you! What a happy card.

Love that those dandelions look like fireworks...

But I'm going to remember for next year! :)
