MFT July Guest Designer Challenge

Happy 4th of July! I hope your holiday weekend is a blast! A change of plans gave me a chance to play all day in my stamp room. This month's guest designer challenge from MFT was to use any neutral along with red and/or blue. I pulled out all the stops along with a ton of stamps and got to work. I used a total of six stamp sets for this project plus three sets of Die-namics. My biggest problem with 4th of July projects is that I don't have a lot of matching stamps, so I broke out my sticker folder from my scrapbooking days and found some that would work. I used stickers for the fireworks, the hat, the barrette, and the firecrackers. All of the design paper is from Gina K's Stars and Stripes digital paper pack.

Here is a closer shot of just the card.

Well that's it for tonight. Enjoy your weekend!
