I made this card for Ashley's Brain Wave Challenge for the week. Check it out on her blog.

I used stamps from the Treehouse American Dream set. Good news!!!! It is on special thru July 4th!!!!! It is such a cute set, with the little children holding either a flag or a sparkler! I used the sparklers for the fire works on my card. How do you like the double colors on the stars. So easy to do with markers. I just inked the star with red and then used the blue marker around the edges. I think it gives a great look to the stars, don't you? I embossed the fireworks with white, irridescent ice and gold embossing powders.

Happy 4th to all of you!

Awesome take on the challenge Karen!!! Love this patriotic card! And it WAS a great idea to use the markers for the two toned stars!
