Fourth Of July - Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Are you ready to celebrate the 4 Th. I just love all the fun decoration that you see on the fourth. Red,White and Blue is so fun. We just got a big Flag pole to put in our front yard. That will hope our big red, white and blue flag. I remember always going to our city park as a little girl and they would have concession there. The rides and food were so much fun along with the parade. My day will be spent home this year relaxing.
My card was made for my Sweet Sketch Wednesday Site. I hope you take a look at all the design teams cards. We thought it would be a fun way to celebrate the fourth. Although my card is not the traditional red white and blue. I thought it turned out darling. I went with my patriotic paper that I had . That determined my colors. I also wanted to make you an added extra. This would be a fun invite to any 4Th of July party or picnic. I just love making invites with tags. Supplies:
Stamps: Stampin Up various, Close to My Heart
Paper: Basic Black SU, Crushed Curry SU, Very Vanilla SU, Rusty Pickle
Ink: Cranberry, Crushed Curry, Basic Black SU, Jim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain
Embellishment: Rhinestones, SU Modern Label Punch, Linen Thread

Hope you have a very Sweet Happy Fourth of July with lots of fun family memories together. Please go check out my Sweet Sketch Wednesday site and see all the designer fun cards. They are all so SWEET. Thanks for stopping by.
