Happy Independence Day!


Hope you're all enjoying your holiday weekend-kind of rainy here today, so we skipped the parade. We're hoping for better weather tonight for the fireworks.

This afternoon we are headed to my husband's aunt and uncle's house for their annual Fourth of July BBQ. Good food and the chance to see some family members that we haven't seen for a while.

I am sharing this card which satisfies two online challenges: 2S4Y and the Cuttlebug Challenge. This card is for Sketch #29 on 2S4Y. The Cuttlebug Challenge this week was to use red, white and blue, plus buttons. The bonus challenge was to use the Swiss Dots embossing folder (one of my favorites.)
This is also a great budget card since it is made almost entirely of scraps! The stars were punched from various blue cardstock scraps and embellished with mismatched buttons. I like the different shades of blue-gives the card a little oomph, don't you think?
Thanks for looking!
