U S A ...... celebrate today!!!

    Let's celebrate 'cause we are having a hop!!!!

  I tried to do the traditional red, white and blue colors......
but I just couldn't wrap my head around a design.

But I did stay with the USA theme.

The new poly stamp set called "Calling all Heroes" was callin' ME!!!!

I wanted it to look more spectacular than just a simple card sooooooo....

............. I made an easel card. 

Deets of some of the items on the card:

I used watercolor paper to create the sunset sky with Real Red and So Saffron using my water brush.
White embossed the stars on So Saffron card stock and fussy cut them out. Used a small piece of window sheet to help the stars stay in the sky. 
Stamped the skyline with Basic Gray and fussy cut it out. 
The "USA" stars were simply stamped and then fussy cut.  
Added some dimensionals to the stars create the "stop" for the easel. 
Added a sentiment from a hostess set....called "Life's Adventure"

In case you get blinded by all the spectacular creations you can get back on 
track with the list below.
