Hi Ya'll! Just wanted to wish everyone Happy 4th of July, and to share this card with you. The inspiration for this card came from an old t-shirt that I have that I wear every year to our blowout on the Alabama River.Alot of us get together with our boats and park at a sandbar and celebrate the 4th. Everyone brings a different dish, and we pig out, and swim, and just have a good time. Sometimes we all ride downriver to watch the annual fireworks show from the water. Anyway, I decided to make this card before the ole' t-shirt gives it up. I used Country Life for the posts, Sweethearts for the towel, Life's A Beach for the bikini and trunks, and an MS punch for the grass. The embossing was done with a Sizzix texture plate, and I added some bakers twine for the clothesline. The inside says "Proud to be an American". Thanks for taking a peek, and I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Fourth of July!
