Happy 4th of July!

I hope all of my American friends are enjoying this 4th of July!  I had some down time between festivities today so I decided to play along with this week's Color Throwdown.

Here is the swatch:

And here is the card I made:

What is a card made on the 4th of July be if it isn't made with any fireworks??  I decided to pull out my Sweet Stamp Shop Happy Hour and Too Hip stamp sets to create this cute congrats card.  I stamped the sentiment directly on the hippo just to be different and I like how it turned out.  

It's hard to see, but I brushed all of the fireworks with my clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to give them more sparkle. Aside from the fact that I dropped the hippo face-down on the red firework before the Wink of Stella was dry, I think it all turned out really cute!

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time...
