Another view of my card.

Hi Again!

It was time to get out my 4th of July stamps for this fun card for the Play Date Cafe Challenge!  Before ya know it July will be here. We always look forward to a fun summer evening in town along the river to watch the fireworks!  I added a combination of papers and distressed them with Tea Dye ink.  The Cosmo Cricket paper looks like it could pass for fireworks, ya think?!:-)  I added some striped paper and glitter.  A few stars of course, and there ya go for a patriotic card!  Thanks for visiting here today!  Take care and enjoy your weekend!:-))
