More May Release Waltzingmouse Inspiration - USA 1776

Throughout the month of June the Waltzingmouse Design Team is highlighting projects designed with the May releases (USA 1776 and Country Labels).  Today I am sharing with you a card I made using the new USA 1776 set.  I've got the 4th of July on my mind and Lady Liberty just fits the bill!  

I used the kite shape in the set to make my star background.  When you line them up they fit the Spellbinder Stars Five perfectly.  I inked them up in a soft pink to give a distressed water mark look.   Of course I had to add some fireworks... I mean BLING... because I can't wait to see the night sky all lit up....  and well... sometimes you have to make a few fireworks of your own!
If you'd like to see more designs with the May Releases, USA1776 and Country Labels pay a visit to Sandie Dunne and Jen Cuthbertson today!  

Oh and if you are a fan of Waltzingmouse (I mean who isn't???) stop by on Thrusday June  27 to see some of the brand new June releases that will be hitting the Waltzingmouse on line store on Sunday June 30!  You're going to love what you see!

Hugs!
Jeanne

Lady Liberty never rocked it out so gorgeously as she is on your 1776 card! It's the perfect card for the celebration. The bling is perfect for the illusion of fireworks. It all fits so amazingly together Jeanne :)

OHHHH....just saw you're being published for July as well. WOO HOO!!! Congratulations!!! I always run (okay, I drive there actually) to the local book store and look at your work when I see you post your latest publications. What a talented lady you are!
