Happy Birthday USA

I spent last Sunday playing with some new stamps and new inks.  I got my new Waltzingmouse Stamps over the weekend and I got a lot of new dye ink from Close to My Heart last week.  So play I did.  I haven't tried all the ink colors yet, but I already have a couple of favorites: Outdoor Denim and Chocolate!

When I saw the new sketch at the Seize My Birthday challenge, I couldn't wait to ink up the Statue of Liberty stamp in the Waltzingmouse USA 1776 stamp set.  And I could use my new fave Outdoor Denim ink too!  Woohoo!

Fabulous coverage for a dye ink!  And I love the fireworks - they are gorgeous heat embossed in gold!  Fussy cutting the fireworks was a lot of work but it had to be done - I love the look!  This was a super fun card to make!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
