Oh Happy Day!

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   Happy Fourth of July! Today's card has a patriotic color scheme as I play along in the Pals Paper Arts challenge.

Pals Paper Arts PPA307

I just got the "Scenic Sayings" stamp set and A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack and I wanted to play with them. You have to play with your new toys, right?! I started with a 3"x 3" square of the DSP and stamped the sentiment in Real Red. I used my MISTI tool to ensure that I could stamp it a couple of times to get a nice, deep image.

Next, I cut a strip of Real Red Card Stock and embossed it with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder. I adhered this to a just-wider strip of Pool Party Card Stock. I tied a length of Thick Whisper White Baker's Twine around the assembly before adhering it to a Night of Navy card base. Easy peasy! I love these bold, bright, patriotic colors!
