Happy 4th July

 Morning, morning, morning and a very Happy 4th July if you're reading this State side :-)   Another pop up post from me today to send you greetings on this historic day. 
My quick card was made form Communique left overs and one sheet of July Montage from the Children's Hour collection. 
The card measures 7" x 5 7/8" - slightly larger than we would usually make but it works and with the envelope punch board we can make envelopes to fit any size card these days :-) 
I started by adding the base paper to the card front cut 1/8" smaller along the width and depth, added the strip of Penny Blacks the cut apart mounted on black card. 
I added the stickers, the large one mounted on foam tape and then Lady Liberty fussy cut from a cut apart and also mounted on foam tape) and the sentiment, using the alpha stickers mounted on black 5/8" circles.   
The last step was to add glossy accents to the stickers and a hint of sparkle to Liberty's crown and ta da the card was complete. 

Have a great day everyone, enjoy your celebrations and look forward to catching up again later in the week :-) C
