Happy Birthday America

Hooray for the Red, White & Blue.....

Happy 4th of July my American friends!!!  I hope you have a great day planned with cookouts and fireworks.

When Penny Black sent me these adorable Balloon dies I knew I had to make a card celebrating our Independence Day.

White card stock was masked with balloons and then spritzed with a Copic spray. 
Die cut Falling Stars (Simon Says Stamp). 
Die cut Uplifting (Penny Black 51-004) from Authentique pattern paper "Pride".
Adorable Hedgie is from the Piece of my Heart set (Penny Black 30-042), colored and fussy cut.
Bakers Twine Maraschino & Midnight Blue (The Twinery) and the White Metallic cord (Kreinik) tied into a bow, glued under the hedgie, then attached to the balloons.

Sentiment is stamped (Friendship by Penny Black 30-160) and "america" is the Missy Micro die (Die-Versions).
Stickles added to balloons.
Card entered to challenges at Simon Says Stamp & Operation Write Home.

Hope you have a wonderful day and
thanks for stamping by....
