Celebrate Freedom!

I made this card to give to my Mother-in-Law for inviting us to celebrate July 4th with her at her timeshare on the beach. Every year a group of people go to see her and everyone brings food and drinks and we all enjoy ourselves immensely, but it seems that no one ever gives her a card. Last year I started a scrapbook which I will continue this year, but I wanted to give her a card also (and, of course, it can go into the scrapbook too). I made the card using the Stand & Salute cartridge, cutting the star and bursts and the liberty bell. The bell is popped off of the card using the cut out section. I cut the card and liberty bell at once using the card feature, then added the red paper with the star and bursts cutouts and then popped the bell on top, chalked and put Stickles everything and then put red, white and blue paper on the inside with Thank You. I like how it turned out. It is much prettier in person ... the scanner just cannot capture the sparkle or colors well for some reason. Thanks for looking!
