Happy 4th of July!

With the 4th of July just around the corner, I decided to make a card celebrating this special day. Warning: You are about to see very vibrant colors in this card! I have not previously made a card with such a vivid color scheme, but what is the 4th of July in the USA without bright red, white and blue? Celebrate with us!

This card was created using image from: Magnolia – “Tilda with balloon”; DP: BoBunny "Block Pary"; Cardstock: DCWV; Banner: Tim Holtz "Vintage Lace" die cut; Ranger "Stardust" stickles. Ribbon, lace, fireworks and july4th embellishments are from my stash. This image was stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copic markers.
