4th of July /Americana Waltz!



Went to see my dear friend Cecilia at my favorite Scrapstore here in Gothenburg; CiLi in Papers yesterday and she gave me this really great 6x6 pad of  paper from BoBunny called Liberty - beautiful matching red, blue and white papers - What perfect timing - YEAH!!! - Got instant inspiration for the 4th of July /Americana Waltz at the Waltzing Mouse so I went home and made this card.(would have loved to say "whipped up" like some of my favorite bloggers do - but it wouldn't be true - this time either...)-: ! )
 For my card I used another of Tami Mayberry's fabulous sketches (which I flipped)  at CardPositioning System and I made sure I included; Shape, Ribbon and Sentiment for Simon Says Stamp Challenge.

Have a great Day!
