I can't recall ever making any 4th of July cards before so here is my first try. Living in Australia I don't have much call for them. I made these card for a fun challenge I am doing with a few friends. This was the card that started me using that striped background all last week LOL. I had fun creating these 2 cards, after I had cut up the card to create the first one I figured I might as well use the remaining scraps to make the second one otherwise they may have been wasted as I would have forgotten about them. I do own a few American themed stamps so it was great to be able to use at least one of them and I haven't used that fireworks background for so long either - it was glad to get inked!
To my American friends - I wish you all a Happy 4th July and to my Canadian friends a belated Happy Canada Day - I meant to say that yesterday in a post and forgot!
