Paper Sweeties July Inspiration Challenge #21 - 'Patriotic Prints'

Happy July! It's officially summer and Independence Day is nearly here! I hope you are enjoying your summer so far. It's time for a new inspiration challenge at Paper Sweeties!  Naturally, this month's inspiration is inspired by the Fourth Of July.
I've used three Paper Sweeties stamp set for my card this month.  The sentiment is a combination of Happy Everything and Live Laugh Love. My sweet little grid patterned star is from Fun Shapes. This card reminds me of those summer days spent at my grandmother's house. Her blue pin tuck dish towels  and the gingham curtains swaying  in the kitchen  window are fresh in my memory and one that I cherish.

Grab a cuppa and go see the Paper Sweeties designers and what they have for your inspiration! Use the blog hop list below to zoom around;

  1. Your card is unusual in that it it has a worn not to old yet vintage feel to it. It is soft yet patriotic without any doubt. Amazing creation. A salute to the red, white and blue. HOORAH.
