Happy 4th!!

Happy July 4th everyone!

It's so weird to be off in the middle of the week, but I'm definitely NOT going to complain.  :)

I have a little something that I whipped up real quick featuring Sister Stamps, Kiyoko.

She's celebrating our Independence day with a serious fireworks show!  I dusted off my Cricut to cut out the star shapes.  Yes I do have one that occasionally gets some love, especially when I don't have that particular shape in Spellbinders, hahaha.  I layered red, white and blue cardstock for the base and top of the card, the bottom of the card I left white and scored it at the top then glued the red and white together.  The patterned papers (both on Kiyoko's kimono & the fireworks star behind her) are from a really old stack from DCWV, definitely came in handy to complete this card.  : )

Wishing you all a fun 4th of July.  Keep watch on your kiddies around the fireworks and be SAFE out there!!
