4th July/Celebrate ,,,, red/white/blue ,,, :-)

also sponsored by Simon Says Stamp :-)

For my card I used this very cute Helz Cuppleditch Ruffles Party stamp. I coloured with copics and inked the edges with distress ink. I added glossy accents to the bone and balloons and a few dots of stickles here and there :-) The papers are from Pink Petticoat and I embossed a circle of white card with a star folder, I sewed all the edges on my machine. The star shape was cut on my cricut and I added a few white Robins Nest Dew Drops, some ribbon and a button to finish :-)
