Happy 4th of July

Good morning!!  I wanted to pop in before all the festivities begin to wish all my American friends a Happy 4th of July.  I hope you all have a fun and safe holiday.

Today is also my nephew's birthday, so I have a card to share that I made for him...

 I used Bottle Rocket Ants from Doodle Pantry on this card.  I colored the image with BIC Markits.  I used the divine swirls Cuttlebug folder to emboss the blue cardstock for the background.  The sentiments came with the image.  The bling is from my stash.  I also tried an altered tri shutter card.  I found the tutorial for it here.

Here's a view of the side.

Thanks for looking.  Have a great day.

I love this style of card! Your colors are wonderful and I love the layout! Your style is changing and it's exciting! Still days of 101-104 in this part of WI! We desperately need rain - weeks now without it in addition to the high temps and our corn crops are like 40% loss now. Wishing you a happy Sunday! Keep cool!
