BSS MONDAY IDEA - 4th of July

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
Today's idea is to make some un-traditional 4th of July cards.
After all, it is a celebration holiday, so let's have some fun.
I love this stamp, I have used it for just about every holiday!

Here is the finished card.
Stamp - Impression Obsession (G2332)
Inside sentiment - Jillian Vance Design, Let Freedom Ring (2011-014)
Spellbinder's die Adorning Squares (S4-389)
Paper - Red White and Blue card stock
Embossing Folders - Sizzix, Tim Holtz Alterations
4th of July set, including star border
Cuttlebug Stars folder
Colored with Copics
Added small punched starts to the round candy balls and white sparkly glitter.
Added Glossy Accents to the Rock Candy
Red and White baker's twine bow

Stamp - Stamping Bella Flora Cyclist (EB120)
Spellbinder's Grand Large Labels
Paper red and white card stock.
Colored with Copics
Star Dust Stickles on white ruffles
Sentiment - Jillian Vance Design, Let Freedom Ring (2011-014)
White and blue ribbon tie, from my stash
Clouds were made using a torn paper towel and sponging dye ink
from the paper towel edge to the card.  Move the strip of paper torn paper towel
so the pattern isn't the same on each row of clouds.
Hope you have a fantastic 4th of July with friends and family.
Thanks for stopping by.
