Happy 4th of July!

Here's another fun and fast 4th of July card. I was having a lot of fun with the stars!!! It's a pretty simple card to make too!!! The small "celebrate" words are from the Stampin' Up! "Fundamental Phrases" set. It was nice to have a small stamp that fit within the spaces I had since I had already glued in the stars. I had been gluing in the stars and having some of them hang over the edges so I could just clip them off. I wanted it to look a little more natural than staged. I didn't want all the stars confined in the white piece of card stock. After I got the stars on and of course the red strip on I thought the card needed something more. I used my die cut and cut out the number 4 for the 4th. I set it on the right side on the strip but it just looked out of place there. SO I decided to add a couple more stars instead. Then I looked through my stamps and saw I did have the "celebrate" word. I stamped it on trying not to hit the stars or the red scalloped piece. It was just what the card needed!!!

I hope you have a fun and safe 4th of July!
Thank you for visiting today,
