Friends of Speedy TV challenge - 4th of July Card

The Friends of Speedy TV challenge this week is to make a 4th of July card, join us here for a chance to win a stamp set:
Now, when I heard that I was to make a 4th of July card, I embraced the challenge because I don't have any actual 4th of July sets. I do have the Mark's Finest Papers 'Buffalo Spring' stamp set, which has a wonderful 'Freedom' sentiment. I inked up a striped embossing folder with Cherry Cobbler and then ran it through the Big Shot, giving it a vintage look. I found a bit of sandable navy paper and embossed with a starry EF, then sanded to bring out the white. The star is a Sizzix Bigz die and I added a Stampin Up button and twine bow.
Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers - Buffalo Spring
Accessories: Embossing folders, Sizzix star die, Stampin Up button, twine, foam tape, Spellbinder label dies, scallop border die
Have a great week!!
