Freedom is not free. That is what we are celebrating in a few days in the good ole USA. I made a card to honor and represent that freedom. My Grandma's birthday was the 4th of July so we not only celebrated the 4th but a big ole birthday to boot. My Grandma has been gone for a few years now. She lived to be 92, but I miss making her birthday cards. I know she is looking down on my now so here you go gram FREEDOM to celebrate

I stamped the sentiment and one firework in Liquid Platinum, in certain lights it looks silver and others it looks gold. That is what I love about it, and it is smooth like butter. 

I stamped the other two fireworks in memento Lady Bug and Danube Blue with a clear embossing over the top.

The stripe with stars boarder I thought was a very cute touch inked in Lady Bug and clear embossed over the top. I added some red little sparkly gems in the center of each firework.

I want to link up at OLS18 SPARKLE AND SHINE. I love this challenge I choose the firework prompt.

I want to link up 153 POP

I want to link up to CAS on Sunday One Layer
