The Sweet Taste Of Freedom




I am so looking forward to Celebrating the 4th of July this weekend... So in the spirit of at I created a card..
To create this card, I used several cut from my Cricut carts... The ice cream cut is from the "Just Because" Cards cart.. I also used my D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug and my Stripes Label QuicKutz embossing folders on the ice cream to give it some texture.. I created the sentiment on this card be using my Design Studio and the Plantin SchoolBook, A Childs Year, New Arrivals, and Cuttin' Up carts... The stars are embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.. To finish this card, I did some tearing, inking, added some stickles, buttons, twine, and used a black marker..

Challenges:
