Hi!  It’s Melody from Handmade Card Happiness sharing my latest card for summer, and I’m ready for some fireworks and a barbecue!

D2BA’s Pomegranate and Midnight Blue Doodles Paper made the perfect layers for this celebratory cascading card!  I stamped the banner, Pledge of Allegiance star, and sentiments using the Pomegranate ink and the Midnight Blue ink.  The banner and Pledge of Allegiance stamps are from an earlier Dare 2B Artzy stamp set called “My Hero.”  The sentiments are from the Patriotic Owl stamp set.  The owl in that set is absolutely adorable!  I need to make a card with that owl!

The stars were cut using a star punch and then adhered to the card.  The banner with the “God Bless America” sentiment was adhered to the base using a strip of acetate.
A white square of card stock trimmed with the top strip from the patterned paper created a place to write a message to the recipient…maybe even an invitation to a holiday barbeque!

I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer!  Head over to my blog for more details! Don’t forget to enter June’s Summer Card Challenge for a chance to win a stamp set and ink pad of your choosing!
