Happy 4th of July!!

Just popping on to post a couple of cards to celebrate our nation's independence. Happy 4th to everyone!!
I'm using colors from ColourQ for my first card.

I started with a kraft cardstock base and cut a white cardstock panel using MFT's Inside Out Stitched Rectangle Stax. I then stamped my images and sentiment from PTI"s Funky Florals in the designated colors. I then cut the center out of the panel using MFT's Stitched Rectangle Stax. I mounted the center panel to the kraft card base and popped the frame up using dimensional foam tape to give it a lift.

My next card uses an image from Crafty Secrets "American Beauty".

I'm also entering one or more cards into the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday
Addicted To Stamps
Simon Says Monday Challenge

Thanks so much for looking! Have a safe and happy 4th of July!!
Blessings~ Birgit

Don't you just love that Funky Florals set?!! I made a patriotic card with it last year, as those flowers reminded me of fireworks too. Both of your cards are really great! Happy 4th! :0)

Happy Fourth to you, Birgit! Wonderful cards! I love the cut frame through those beautiful flowers, and your Lady Liberty looks great with all of those fantastic layers and ribbons!

Beautiful cards, Birgit! I love the inside out embossing on the first one and how you added the red ribbon to the 2nd one...such lovely details! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at ATSM!

These are great cards. I love the way you used the colours from Colour Q in the first card and love that sentiment. The 2nd card is great-reminds me of the suffragettes
