Happy 4th of July!

Happy Birthday America! 

I hope  you are all enjoying this long holiday weekend.  Since it is so dry here there is a ban on burning and most fireworks.  Still, it is a wonderful day for celebrating, barbeque and just kicking back. 

Here are two cards I did for the holiday CAS challenge at SCS.

This card was made using one of the postal images from Rubber Monger – this particular set has 4 stamps, each with a phrase from America the Beautiful.  I love the set and don’t use it nearly enough.  It was colored with copics in the V and BG series. I mounted it on some lilac and black cardstock that was cut with pinking sheers.  The star image is from an Inkadinkado set called You Rock!  I was looking for a good star image and just happened to glance at the set to find the stamp.  The “America” stamp is from Mark’s Finest Papers “Regal and Proud” set which contains some great patriotic and masculine images.

This card with so quick and easy.  I used the same star image from the previous card and just stamped it 9 times.  I colored the stars with red and blue prisma pencils and mounted the panel with bllue cardstock.  The sentiment is computer generated because I could not find a good “God Bless America” stamp in my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today!
