My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #62 - 4th of July and Canada Day

Good Morning Everyone!  To all my Canadian friends, I hope you had a happy and safe Canada Day  and to my friends here in the USA, Happy 4th of July this week!!  This week we are celebrating the fine countries we live in!  Our Monday Challenge this week is 4th of July and Canada Day!  Here is my 4th of July card.

I was looking for a fun sparkler to cut with my Cricut but decided to make my own out of Crinkle Ribbon instead!  I love how it turned out! 

I even got some good use out of my Christmas stamps for this card! The sentiment on the star comes from My Craft Spot's Merry Christmas set and the stars stamped on the base of the card come from My Craft Spot's 'Tis the Season stamp set.   I cut the star from Plantin School Book cart and addded some doodling around it. 

I found a scrap of shimmer paper for the background and embossed it with a stars folder then sewed it on.  The sparkler was created with a stick by tying three bows using Cranberry, Snow White and Navy Blue Crinkle Ribbon and a bow with Airmail Divine Twine all available at My Craft Spot (except the stick which came from my yard).    

Make sure you stop by and check out the rest of the AMAZING Canada Day and 4th of July projects at My Craft Spot this week and share your projects with us for your chance to win a fabulous prize!  Speaking of fabulous prizes, don't forget to mark your calendars!  You are invited to the Stamp Release Party coming up next week at My Craft Spot! There will be amazing projects each day and fun prizes all week long! We will be ending the week with a Blog Hop on Saturday and the full release of the stamp sets. Mark your calenders and come join us for some fun!  Thanks for stopping by today!
