Friends and Independence Day

Happy Monday Friends!  Today, I am sharing my card for the newest Friends of Speedy TV challenge, to make a card for the Fourth of July (challenge #79).  I think we will see quite a few fun and festive cards.  This is always such a fun holiday followed up by a ton of family birthdays for me.  We have plans this year to head East of the Mountains and visit relatives up from Arizona.  It should be a hoot.  We are planning to spend quite a bit of time by the river as the expected temperatures are around 90F.  Oh boy, that is a little warm for this Western Washington born and bred girl.  I talked my hubby into packing an umbrella for shade and I will have lots of cool drinks!
I used a Fall To Layout from the clean and simple stamping blog to get my card started.  Now, don't you forget that Mark's Finest Papers offers up a free stamp set as a prize for one lucky participant.  Won't you play along?
 
Details - Stamps: Be Proud (MFP); Paper: Crumb Cake, GKD White, Brilliant Blue, Real Red, PC dp; Ink; Tuxedo Black, Barely Banana, Crumb Cake; Accessories: Sponge daubers, Copic & Touch Twin Markers, Pennant Trim die (Verve), paper snips, square lattice embossing folder, Scor-Tape, corner rounder.

That little heart is making a few appearances today but love how you have used it on your card with the colour choices and cute pennant. Enjoy your time away and don't forget the sunscreen.
