Freshly Made Sketches #42

Happy Fourth of July to those of you in the states!  Hope you are enjoying a day of festivities with your family.  It seemed only fitting to make a patriotic card for this weeks Freshly Made Sketch since the challenge starts on the fourth!  Here is the week's sketch-

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Card
D1458 American Celebration
X7152B Superhero Paper Pack
1385 White Daisy Cardstock

Design Tips-My stars were cut and layered with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  All of my background paper is handstamped. It is hard to tell from the photo, but I added a bit of bling to some of the stars with my Spica Glitter Pen.

I have entered this card in the following challenges:

Die Cuttin' Divas - Red White & Blue
Just Us Girls - Stars and Sparkle
Ribbon Carousel Challenge - Independence Day
