Fourth of July Blessings...

Hope you and your family are enjoying all of the blessings of this day. It's been very quiet here - dear hubby and I went to the movies with friend Shirley and her dear hubby. We saw "The Proposal". It was very cute. It was nice to laugh out loud.

Heather, over at OZ-somestamps posted her challenge this week. And wowzers, what a challenge! It looks easy - she even has dimensions on her pieces! Once I got started, it was tougher than I thought! I did get carried away, and put some birds on the bottom corner - silly me. Just couldn't leave it as it was!

Here is my card - hope you like it!

Stamps: The Angel Co., Beautiful Day and Tag Tidbits
Ink: Colorbox Chalk Ink, Chestnut Roan
Cardstock: The Angel Co., Amelia
Paper: The Angel Co., Tuscany Spice
Ribbon: Martha Stewart Bows

Have a safe and blessed weekend.
