Happy 4th America!!

Hey Y'all!!!

Happy Independence Day to my American friends!! I created a quick card just for today(Well.....this can be used as a Birthday card too) and it goes a lil somethin' like this.....CHECK IT!!!!


I used the Stampendous! set Agapanthus Thank You which I just LURVE!! I played with a new technique too!! I inked the stamp and sprayed water on it and stamped on the paper....watercoloring...maybe? Well anyhoo I played along in the CAS-ual Fridays challenge this week(do you see my two circles....lol?!):


I also used the colors from the Colour Q challenge this week:

Thanks for stopping by and have a super awesome Independence Day!!!
