Happy Birthday, America!

Hello stampers,
     Happy Frenzy Friday! I hope everybody has a fun & safe holiday weekend. Please remember to pause & thank/pray for the men & women who continue to fight for our freedoms.
     So I was a bit busy yesterday & totally forgot to submit my card, but I did make my post for it. This was a hard sketch for me as I couldn't get beyond the stars, until I saw a preview of another card & remembered interpretation is half the battle. For the base of the card, I used Real Red Card Stock, followed by a layer of Whisper White Card Stock. I used the Celebrate Today Stamp Set to add decoration to the Real Red, Whisper White & Pacific Point Card Stock balloons, that were cut out using the Balloon Framelits in the Big Shot, which were then tied with White Baker's Twine. I used a strip of Pacific Point DSP followed by a Real Red Card Stock piece punched out with the Washi Label Punch, followed by a Whisper White Card Stock piece punched with the Word Window Punch. Lastly, I added a sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set onto the Word Window piece.
     This week's sketch was created by Kim Innis. Hop on over to the SFF blog & check out what the other team members did. Better yet, make your own card based on the sketch below & add your link to this week's challenge. Happy sketching & enjoy your weekend!
