My Very First 4th of July Card

Yup...it truly is. I'm thinking back...and....nothing. I've never made a patriotic card before ever! How is that possible? So I was playing around with my Papertrey It's A Celebration set and this is what I came up with...

I think it turned out kind of cute. I really love the colors. I am so very glad that they will have this color...I hope for a long time since SU's soft sky will retire in June. I love this shade of blue. it's a fav of mine!

So this is my second card for Sharon's No Time To Stamp glitter challenge. I was just not happy with the spica on the other card. It's really pretty in person but to photo....well you just can't see the sparkle. I thought that was a bit of a bummer.

Thanks so much for stopping by...I am off to enjoy our first day back to school. By that I mean try and play catch up around here! One note...please make sure you page down to the next post...that's where the winners of the blog candy are announced. I'm not sure when I am going to be able to post again today so I wanted to get it all in this morning.

Have a great one! I will post you soon! :)
