Happy July 4th...Let's Celebrate

Happy Thursday Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

Welcome to this week's Just-A-Scrappin' Challenge...celebrating July 4th!

For this challenge, I did not create a traditional July 4th card, but instead chose to challenge myself to use several crafting goodies that needed to be shown a little TLC. I started by die cutting four different pieces of paper, three pattern from K&Company's Americana collection and Taylored Expressions' Sugar Cube, using Taylored Expressions Scribbles Cutting Plate. I then selectively removed pieces of the Sugar Cube card stock and replaced it colored pattern paper. Lastly, I die cut the Celebrate sentiment several times for dimension and added Glossy Accents for shine. A few scattered stars completed my card.

I am entering this card in several challenges this week...
