Happy 4th!

Happy 4th to all my American friends! Out my way (close to the US border in Washington) the weather is absolutely gorgeous! Perfect day for a picnic. I wanted to use the star theme along with the American colors for this special birthday card. The stamps are MFT and my SU canvas BG stamp. I did some stitching in the "twine" color and added twine accents. The little star came off of an anklet I disassembled at the $ store. Colored with my copics. The star shape is cut with my colluzle, haven't used it in ages! Guess it pays to hang on to some things.

Enjoy your holiday!

What a fabulous idea about the ankle bracelet charm! You can really get a lot of mileage out of one bracelet!

This is awesome! I have a star coluzzle template too and haven't used it in a long time--you've inspired me to pull it out and try something new with it.
