Its Almost 4th of July

Hi all! Its Monday which means a new week!  The 4th Of July is this week which is very exciting it will be my Nephews first 4th of July and I cant wait to see how he will do when we take him to see fireworks... So we shall see :)

I did make a card in honor of the 4th of July and wanted to share with you.
I am also entering this into :

So for my card:

So for this card I went pretty simple..
I used a plain white premade card, 
Then i used a piece of Glittered cardstock for the top layer. 
The sentiment card was cut using  a punch
I wanted to use the starts I got at M's on clearance 
The flower was from my collection and then I added a Glittery Blue brad in the center to make it fit in
The sentiment came from K Andrew Designs "Sweet July" 
Then i covered the sentiment with white glittery tulle.

I know it was a simple card with not to much detail but I actually like how it turned out :) 

Until Next time
