Independence Day Hop!

Hello everyone and Happy Independence Day!
I am participating in a blog! What??!! These are all people on Diana's team. I hope this works! (thanks to Barb for all her hard work on this!)
If you are on the hop, you should have come from Mary's adorable project.  

My card is quite simple actually. I used Real Red card stock to make stripes from the Swirly Bird dies. Then I took a 3 1/4 inch square of Night of Navy and again used the "stripes" die to make the Navy piece look "wavy"! I think it works, what do you think??
Don't look too closely, my gluing technique is a bit off on this card. I wanted to re-make it, but I ran out of time!! Silver glimmer paper stars are the bit of sparkle this needs!!
I hope wherever you are, you have a safe and happy Fourth of July!
Now I will swing you back to the beginning, Diana's blog and her adorable project with the Jar of Love Stamp Set and Dies!!


  1. Adorable..... I love the way the stripes look like they are waving!!!

  2. I loved it when I first saw it and love it more now - great use of the dies!! Congrats on a successful first blog hop - well done, Ellie!

  3. Super cute, I loved that you used the swirls for the flag, I have not used this part of the set yet. Thanks for joining our hop. Big hugs, Di

  4. Hi Ellie,
    What a great pair we are with our "matching" projects; I see you love this diecut as much as I do. You did a super job with your project - so glad you were able to join this month's blog hop!

  5. OMG, gotta get this set! Love it! Beautiful card! Fun hopping with with you!
