Happy 4th of July

I've enjoyed my early morning so far, having a cup of much needed coffee while I worked on this card. It has not escaped me that although things are not perfect in our country at the moment, I had the freedom to do exactly what I wanted this morning and for that I am thankful. 

This will be a quick post. The technique to achieve this background is So cool and NOT watercolor. I am hoping to have a video showing this technique in tomorrow's blog post, so stay tuned! I really liked the simplicity of this card. I tried putting words on it, but simple just felt right. I am in love with the yummy new Crinkled Seam Binding from Stampin' Up! in Night of Navy. It adds a touch of artsy-whimsy to this card. I used Real Red and Night of Navy inks on this card. 

Wherever you call home, I hope you have a wonderful day. 

Artfully Yours,
