***********************
I wanted a card 4th July (independence) day card for a US friend and thought this was the ideal opportunity. I managed to find some papers in my download collection with stars on them and the stripe is some I found in my stash. My image - Spring Blossoms - is coloured with distress inks and matted and layered with the red then white embossed with the tiny bubbles folder. The corners are cut with the vintage corner die and I added two ribbon flowers at the edges of the ribbon - you remeber the ones we used to make at school - folding the two ends of the ribbon back on themselves, then pulling the loose end until a flowers appeared.

Materials
Red paper - the Card Co., blue - downloaded : Image - Spring Blossoms : Medium Ranger distress inks : Provocraft vintage corners & tiny bubbles embossing folder : Ribbon from stash
