CCMC #305 - Celebrate Independence

Good Morning, Stampers!

It's THURSDAY CHALLENGE DAY and Create with Connie and Mary have a great layered sketch for you to try!

The little flower embellishments on the sketch reminded me of stars so I stepped 
a bit out of my "box" and used the NEW Work of Art stamp set in a 4th of 
July theme. It came together quickly and I really love the shimmer and 
sparkle of the silver foil and shimmer papers.
