Happy Fourth!!!

I saw a card on Pinterest that blew me away.  It was by Dining Room Drawers and I went to her web site and was amazed at her lovely work.  She did a baby card using the Pop n Cuts system and I was inspired to do the same.  I used a patriotic color scheme.  The only thing was I didn't have the die for the colander that she used.  Off to ebay to see if I could find one and as luck would have it, I did.  So here is my version.  I didn't have any paper that resembled graniteware for the colander.  So I made my own.  The label on the front is Sizzix Label 25 I believe.  The sentiment is from PTI as is the parade of patriotic children.  I used an old Sizzix star die to cut the stars. The flowers inside are from Tim Holtz tattered strip die.  Fireworks are from PTI.  The red checked eyelet border is a Martha border die.  I used some gold Strickles for a little spark.  Hope you all have a great day on Thursday and remember what this country is all about.
