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.
