Friends and the Fourth

Happy Monday!  Are you ready for another Friends of Speedy TV challenge?  We have a great one for you.  This week the challenge is to make a 4th of July card.  I had to think and think on this one.  I'm pretty pleased with what I came up with for this challenge.  It's my Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company take on the Grand Old Flag.  I used the polka-dotted ribbon stamp from Flaps My Wattles and then borrowed a portion of a sentiment from Fabulous Dogs!  I did a little trimming, cutting, pasting and embossing and a card was born.
Don't forget that you are playing for a wonderful Mark's Finest Papers stamp set called "Oh Happy Day".  Check it out here:

I hope today kicks off a wonderful week for you!  I'm very excited as this is my first full week out of school.  I have plans to have fun!  Thanks for stopping by!

Details - Stamps: Flaps My Wattles (MFP), Fabulous Dogs (MFP); Paper: Sweet Tooth White, Basic Black; Ink: Real Red, Brilliant Blue, Tuxedo Black; Accessories: Square Lattice ef, paper snips, stampin' dimensionals.
