An Inspirational Card for the July Secret Sister Swap

Hello Peeps!  Hope you have a fun and crafty weekend ahead.

Here's a card I made for Mary in Florida for the July Secret Sister Swap.   The theme for this month was red, white, and blue which really stumped me since Independence Day is over.  So I thought I'd use this inspirational quote using the color combo.

To add a sparkling touch, I paper pieced the 2 flowers using glitter paper.

Ingredients:  DP and edge punch by Stampin' Up, Sentiment by Stampendous,  "Honeyblossom Sprig" die by Memory Box from Island Scrapbooking,  corner accent by Spellbinder, Spellbinder dies, distress ink, glitter paper, ribbon, button, carpet thread and pearls by Kaiser Craft.

Challenges:
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge - "All That Glitter"
Cute Card Thursday - "Challenge 227 "So Distressing"
Crafts and Me Challenge - "Anything Goes"

Thanks for stopping by.   Have a Scrap Happy Day!!!
