From one celebration to another...

Well after my early Christmas crafting yesterday, Saffa dared us to make a card for a celebration from another culture. I'm sure these dares get harder every week!! I searched the interweb for various different religious festivals but the obvious ones had already been covered, so I decided to go with America's Independence day - 4th July. As far as I know this is celebrated widely across the U.S. and it was an easy card to make!!

Items used; cardstock from stash, sizzix stars die, mm rub ons, and alphabet brads(think these were from Spare Parts).

Not too sure what I will do with this card now it's made though, I don't actually know anyone personally who celebrates July 4th! Oh well, I will put it in my card box with all the others, you never know when it might come in handy. :oD

Must tidy up the craft room now, just gonna have a quick look at the new SA kit first as it's just arrived!

Have a great weekend!

Great card - it really stands out, Sarah. If you know anyone who loves all things american you could frame it and use it as a gift. I think I'm going to frame my Art Attack one and put it on the wall above my desk - took way too much time and effort to hide in a box!
