USA - Happy 4th of July

 Hello peeps,

I'm so late trying to get my post done this morning. Many technical difficulties in setting up some things on my new computer, especially things related to my blogging. In addition, my light box's light strip broke, so my pictures are dark! I will try to fix, but I think I'm going to have to try another light source for it.

Here is my 4th of July, summer themed card for this week's Paper Players Challenge. I'm using Linda's sketch from this week's Freshly Made Sketches.

These are images from the Tylored Expressions 4th of July Wreath. The bottom of the card is embossed with a SU Stars EF, and the fireworks dies are also TE. I added some die cut stars cut from holographic card stock using a SSS die.

Here is the inside of the card using the sentiment from the TE stamp set.

Happy Friday and thanks for looking in,
