Happy 4th of July

Happy July 4th!
Today, as Americans, we celebrate
our Freedom and Independence!

Speaking of FREE!
It's a good day to visit the 

It's Monthly Mocha Manic Monday
and that means a FREEBIE!

But hurry over, because it's only available 

And while you're there,
it's a great time to take advantage of the great sale!

The sale ends tomorrow night at midnight!

ALL digis in the kids section are 40% off
All handmade embellishments are 40% off
All unmounted rubber stamps are 30% off 

I used the Mocha Manic Freebie for my card today
and I have to say, I'm really happy with how it turned out!

There is a Month Long Challenge at the Fresh Brewed Designs
The challenge this month is to use a sketch and any 2 embellishments
with a Fresh Brewed image.
I flipped the sketch over and made a "spit ball" flower
and a leafy swirl flourish for my two embellies.
The image is paper pieced and colored with Prismacolor Pencils.

You're probably thinking, "EEW... a spit ball flower!?!"
I don't know what else to call them!

I punched a 1" scalloped flower 3 times
spritzed the pieces with water and rolled them up into little balls
(they look like spit balls).
After they're dried, unravel them, add a brad thru the center 
and they turn out really pretty!

Yep... spit ball flowers! Yum! (-;

Hope you have a safe and happy 4th of July!!

Challenges for this card:

Really pretty red white and blue paper. And your spit ball flower is awesome - I've also called them that - LOL. Wonderful entry into the flourish challenge. Thanks so much for taking our challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show.
