A patriotic card

 The card I made today is very patriotic. I had 2 challenges is mind when creating the card. I'm going to link this card up to the Simons Says Stamp Wednesday challenge and the Lawnscapping Challenge.

Here is my card:

  I used a Heidi Swapp stencil for the stripe background and colored it using Distress Inks ( Chipped Sapphire and Fired Brick)  I used the Puffy Star dies from Lawn Fawn to cut out the vellum and felt stars. Stamped the sentiment and fireworks ( Lawn Fawn) and embossed them in white and iridescent glitter. Added a few star gems to finish up ( and to hide the glue spots on the vellum). 

Thanks for stopping by!!!
