Celebrate 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July to all my American friends!! What a wonderful day, celebrating Independence Day and I hope that the sun is shining where ever you are!

Just a quick card for today's inspiration challenge using stamps from Unity's April and January Kit of the Month.

I was totally inspired by the colours in this poster AND because it reflects golf, I couldn't pass it up lol! And the "celebrate" is to inspire me to have a good game!!

I love how Dawn McVey uses her Top Note die so much on her delicious layouts so I opted to use mine also! No use having something sit around and not use it....

.....and the cardstock is Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla from Stamping Up! My designer papers are from Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients - yep - still using those papers!

The ink is Stamping UP!'s Baja Breeze (love that colour and it's gone......geesh...) and Papertrey Ink Melon Berry.....

I hope you have a wonderful day at your picnic and fireworks and don't forget to stay safe too!


  1. Very sweet card. I love the polka dots and the way you did top note die.

  2. I really like how you used the top note die on this, Bonnie. Cute card!

  3. This is wonderful! I need to use my top note die more too!!

  4. This is literally making me drool. LOL. Or maybe it was those pengie cupcakes. NOPE it has to be this layout & the fruity beautiful colours. OH SO Stunning!

  5. I've been meaning to try that same top note technique only with labels 1 nesties since I dont have the top note die! I KWUM about baha breeze. I am going to miss pink pirouette, ridinghood red and baha! I tried to order the first two (I have 3/4 pack of baha still) and my demo didn't order soon enough and they sold out. I think I'll switch to sweet blush since it is so close, thanks for the 'scraps' you sweetheart!
