Happy Birthday America!
I'm totally thrilled to have been chosen to be part of the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog for the next six month. It truly is an honor.
The new DT's first challenge is a Patriotic Theme because as you know we will be celebrating July 4th Independence Day and our neighbors to the north of us Celebrated Canada Day yesterday, July 1st.
Here is my very first submission as a DT member:
I call it my "All American Card"......the rugged distressed red, white and blue. Elements all over the place inspired by a sky busy with fireworks. All products are Close to my Heart except the wire writing, a small amount of distressed Stickles and paper used for the rosette in the center.
The Star and Stripes wire words where embellishments gifted to me by a close friend and I thought added a nice touch to the card.
A peek of the inside. Happy Birthday Sweet America. God Bless and may Freedom always ring in our Great Nation!

To achieve the distressed look I used the Edge Distressing Tool.
Get inspired and join the fun over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog. It's simple just follow the theme for the week and used some of your Close to my Heart products. Honestly, it is a great way to keep your skills up and your creativity flowing.
God Bless and have a safe and enjoyable 4th!
