I found this card in the "I haven't share this yet" pile! Yay! :) The last two days have been very productive, but unsharable, so this was a good find!
To create the background, I die cut several scalloped squares from brown cardstock. I turned them at an angle, to create a diamond shape. I adhered the entire square, even if it hung over the edge, that way, I could go back, trim, and get a clean edge.
We are looking forward to the traditional 4th of July at my parents house on the lake this weekend. The small town I grew up in has a parade, carnival, and all those fun summer activities. Everyone comes home, so you get to see all the people you grew up with. Its a wonderful time. And the little man is *very* excited to see the fireworks. We come back home to the big lake to watch the fireworks. We sit on the shore of Lake Superior and watch them be launched over the bay. It makes me so glad to live here! have a safe and wonderful 4th! thanks for stopping by!
