Happy 4th of July to my American blogging friends! To celebrate our country's 233rd birthday, I created some fireworks of my own. Using the large star punch, I punched out some Real Red and Night of Navy cardstock, temporarily adhered them to copy paper and punched them again to make these starbursts. Then I used some Versamark ink and iridescent ice embossing powder to make them sparkle. Can't you just see the fireworks lighting up the sky?!

Stamps: Starring You
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, Real Red
Accessories: Big Shot, texturz plate, word window punch, modern label punch, large star punch, paper piercer, silver brad, iridescent ice embossing powder, heat tool, stampin dimensionals

A very happy 4th July from this side of the pond Marilyn. Great fireworks card, I'll have to remember it when our Bonfire night rolls around. The paper pierced trails are a nice touch. Sara xx
