Jaydee is our hostess and the theme is CELEBRATION! We are running the challenge for 2 weeks, so you can enter a card each week and have 2 chances of winning a prize. I hope you will help us celebrate and play along.

I chose to make a card celebrating the 4th...we do it up BIG in our small town. Huge fireworks, parades, rodeo's, the fair...lots going on for all the tourists and cabin people who frequent our area up north. It's always a busy and fun week.

 For my 4th of July card, I decided to use products from some of my favorite stamping companies who donated prizes to our Paper Players celebration. Cheery Lynn, Dies R Us and Tutti Designs. I have been on their design teams for awhile now, and was so excited that they offered up gift certificates to help us celebrate! A BIG thanks to them and to ALL the awesome companies who donated.

I started out with Tutti Designs dotted pierced and scalloped pierced rectangles. Two of my "go to" dies that I use all the time!

Another favorite die of mine is the celebrate pop up die from Cheery Lynn. I like to cut it off and use it as a sentiment. I added some CL swags, a bow and tiny enamel stars.

What an amazing celebration card! Scrolling down through your posts, all of your July 4th cards are fabulous too! Happy 4th!

Leslie Miller said...

What fun! I always love how you use the celebrate die. It really makes the whole card. The swags could almost be used as watermelon wedges, and those little enamel stars are cute! Enjoy your 4th! It sounds like a super good time!

Laurie this is adorable! What a wonderful celebration card and it really reminds me of the 4th July picnic we had a couple of years ago with my friends from the UK. We had a whole table display in red white and blue with watermelon and games and this card really reminded me of that wonderful day!

Well if this isn’t festive and full of patriotic fun! Laurie, I just love everything about this and those dies are awesome. What a fabulous card to celebrate the 4th. Thank you so much for inviting me to join you all over at The Paper Players for this milestone challenge. 400 is certainly a number to be excited about! Hugs!

Love this fun patriotic card Laurie! I love that the 'celebrate' takes centre page, finished with those fabulous swags (they remind me of election time!) A wonderful card for our 400th celebration challenge.
