Happy 4. Of July

Hello my friends…thank you for your visit.

Today i have a very “American” inspired card made. 4. of July is just simply amazing… besides the history of this holiday, it is always a wonderful experience for me, husband and of course the boys to first be at a gathering with friends and than later we go and watch the amazing fireworks at night. Even in the area were we live.. where it is not that big of a city.. omg.. it is for me as a European still something where i go uuuuhhh and aaahhh :-)
Iam especially anxious about 4. of July this year, because we are going to be that day in Orlando, Florida and i can not wait to see what this city has planned.

Anyhow..  the card came together when i looked at
Carole’s great sketch for this week. I noticed the scallops at the bottom and i thought … must be doing something different than just using a border punch… so i looked though my papers and i came across this Imaginice paper with the pattern that had the big loops, i simply cut some of them out and matched my image to the papers.
