I made this card to send to my girls, since they wont be home for July 4th.  I went through all of my stamps and I didn't have one 4th of July sticker or stamp.  MY CREATIVE TIME is having an Patriotic sketch and color theme.  I really had fun with this.  The main image is A Child's year.  The papers are Bo Bunny.  I cut out circles from the background paper and cascaded them down the side.  I used My Creative time Stitched button dies for the stars and made a bow with Martha Stewart twine.  on the inside I topped the page with a K & Company border. The Stitched Vintage Label die and stamp was used as a background for the Stitched Scallop and Circle die.  The sentiment is from All Around Everything set.  I decided to use "Reach For the Stars" for the sentiment.
