Have A Happy 4th Of July

Are you ready for the 4th of July?! You better be, because its just around the corner! I'm definitely ready! Can't you tell from this cute card I have to show you?!  I've used this cute image, Firecracker, from
Mayzy Art. She is adorable, isn't she? She is colored with Promakers.

This is meant to be a masculine card, made especially for my very best friend who lives in Florida.  He always appreciates my handmade cards, so he gets one especially made for him, every holiday and birthday.

All papers are from my stash. My card layout uses the sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy. I've added glitter and sparkle to the image with a clearstar gelly roll pen. The stars are punched with two star punches, by Recollections. I used some shiny blue adhesive star embellishments to add the finishing touch.
