Let Freedom Ring!

How will you be celebrating Independence Day this year? We are having family over for a BBQ and we are really hoping the weather will cooperate with our plans. We always set up tables to eat outside and the guys like to play horseshoes and ladder ball. The kids play with water balloons and swim in the pool and all of us ladies just sit back and mingle as we take it all in. We even have sparklers for everyone when the sun goes down. It's always a day full of fun!

Here's a card I made to celebrate the holiday. It was also made for this weeks Chocolate, Coffee, Cards Blog Challenge, 4th of July. I colored the Liberty Bell (800H) with Copic Markers and fussy cut it out. Then I adhered it on to a star embossed background. The pattern paper you see in the background was hand stamped using the Interlocking Star Background (819H) in red and yellow inks. The sentiment banner was stamped with "Let Freedom Ring" (802D) and I stamped the Interlocking Stars over top using just yellow ink.

As I mentioned above this is for the Chocolate, Coffee, Cards Blog Challenge. DRS Designs is giving away a $10 store voucher for this challenge. So create a 4th of July card and then run over there and link your card up for a chance to win! 

Hope you all have a safe and wonderful 4th of July holiday!
