Good morning, it's been a strange week with the 4th being mid week it's thrown all my days out. 

Speaking of Independence Day the moodboard challenge over at SumMore Fun is all patriotic this time round. 
So I have made a card using their Strokes of Pride stamp set which is a Raisin Boat set perfect for the challenge:

I stamped the stars using embossing ink onto shiny card and then embossed with clear powder. I then colored my card with blue ink, polishing it so the stars shone through.
next I used Stayzon ink to add the sentiments.
This was the matted with red card and added to a white card base, keeping to the red white and blue theme in the pictures of the moodboard.

So want to join our challenge and get the chance to win a gift certificate to SumMore Fun? Oh and the prize doubles if you use stamps from from the store! 

Want some discount too? Use the code SHARON10 at check out and I will save you 10%

I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did
you hire out a developer to create your theme? Exceptional work!
