Sneak Peek (from July 2) Revealed

I promised I would reveal the entire card. The Hostess from the swap this card is in has sent the cards out and I received mine this afternoon. WHOA NELLY! They are soo cool! Anyway.. Here's my contribution to the swap.

Our rules (more like guidelines, anyway) were:
1.) Random Stamp *
2.) Make it tight.
3.) Have fun.

* I am not a huge fan of random stamping... I think mostly because it's such a challenge for me.... and then having to use it on a project... that's another thing. This was a LOT of fun to make and I'm not so leery of random stamping anymore. YAY! Alisha did say that she wanted us to all "think out of our boxes". It worked!

YEs, it does POP in real life! The fireworks are not adhered to the card. The gold "fuses" are actually elastic ties that I cut up. The little fireworks bounce all over if you shake the card. :)


PS.. sorry bout the glitter!

I LOVE this card!!! It is great! Sometimes it can be difficult to stamp patriotic cards (I don't know why!), but this card is just fantastic!
Thanks for sharing =)
