The image for this card is the newest digital release from Sweet -n Sassy Stamps. Korin came up with this fabulous digi just in time for those Independence Day cards. I think I will use this one for my Sisterhood of the Traveling Cards Swap. Lady Catherine is our hostess this month, and paying homage to our country, as well as those who are bravely serving our country is her theme for this month. A perfect choice, I thought, and bless Korin, because this digi arrived in my email box just as I was stressing because I have NO patriotic stamps. She saved the day for me!! I will say that the rest of this card I struggled with. We are fresh out of any patriotic paper in our area, so I made my own with what I could find that was rustic, as well as red and white. I sponged the edges of everything with Tim Holtz distress ink in vintage photo. The sparks from the bottom of the rocket have glitter on them, but it doesn't show up well in the picture.
Paper: Night of Navy, Riding Hood Red, Rusty Pickle DP, Canson Watercolor paper
Ink: Black Stazon, Various SU Ink for watercoloring, Tim Holtz Vintage Photo

Wow! This is a outstanding card!!! I love the rustic look!!! send some of that heat here....67 degrees and raining!
This is a great card, and love the sentiment.
GOR-GEOUS! I love the vintage feel to this, almost as if it were part of the original papers and design from our Founding Fathers! I'll won't be in the US for the 4th (boohoo! One of my fave holidays!) so enjoy some good o'l fashion fun for me! :)
I love the Vintage Americana feel of this card. You have got to teach me how watercolor!
