4th July

Welcome to my card for this weeks challenge at Pinspiration
This weeks theme is 4th July.

My card this week is very much a celebration  with the red, white and blue swags. The card is 8x8, with half the front cut off. The inside is covered with a blue patterned paper. The front panel of the card is covered with a blue card that has been embossed using the Sizzix swissdot folder.

The little girl in the rain has been coloured with Tria pens and cut out with dies. There are 2 paper doilies under the image.

The swags have been cut out with a Cheery Lynn die. With 3 layered on to the outside edge of the inside of the card and one on the front edge. This is quite a simple but effective card, I hope you agree.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges
