Two more for the 4th!

 I'm taking a little break from my If you give a girl a lighthouse series. Have no fear! There are at least 2 more offerings coming next week. :) In the meantime, I have a couple more July 4th concoctions...

After finishing this duo, I had one more Liberty Girl was sitting on my table begging for a card of her own!  I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch from Karen Giron.  She's got a DT Call running using this sketch.  Time is almost up so you should head over and join in the fun!  I tweaked my take on the embellies by making the "flower" part my ruffled ribbon and the "banner" part the embellies.  The papers are Pink Paislee-Declaration & Authentique-Glory.  The Copics used are Y15, YR07, R29, BG10, B99, E17, E18, E19, E00, E000, E000, R20, and T1.

I was trying to clean up some of the July 4th inspired scraps and this card came together!  Love when papers put themselves together for you. :)  Once I saw the papers I immediately thought of using this wicked old SU hydrangea that I got as a hand-me-down recently.  It had never been inked!!!!  I used Tim Holtz peeled paint, worn lipstick, and fired brick.  The sentiment is from PTI summer jar fillers and is die cut with a Spellbinders die that I also used on the whole If you give a girl a lighthouse series this week. ;)

Well, I guess I'll actually be sending out July 4th cards this year!  Are you going to be stateside this July?  What are y'all doing this for the 4th?

The torch is lit and the hydrangeas are blooming as I head here:
