Joy Clair - Celebrate!

Hello everyone!

I hope you all have had a nice weekend and have had some time off to celebrate with your family Independence Day, if you live in the USA!  I am enjoying my long weekend with my family.  I hope to see the fireworks somewhere tomorrow, how about you?

I am here with Joy Clair, I am featuring one of the most recent new background stamp Grungy Flag.  If you have not seen all the beautiful designs the team has created, please stop by the Joy Clair blog to see them.  The sentiment is from the Joy Clair stamp Let's Celebrate.  This is a perfect stamp you can use for any occasion.  There is a girl image on this set and you can easily have her holding a flag for Independence Day!

Here is my card for your inspiration:

My card is an A2 card, I used my Misti to stamp the background image from the Grungy Flag background stamp.  I inked the flag up with red and blue at the same time and stamp it on my paper.  I think I stamped it about 3 times before I got the look I wanted (thank goodness for my Misti).  I added my sentiment at an angle.  If you can see I have a tool called a paper distresser made by Tim Holtz (tonic) and I distressed my edges so it would look grungy like the flag.  I adhered all my layers together and finished the card off by adding the star embellishments. 

If you have not had a chance to join the "anything goes" challenge, please take a minute and join.  Joy Clair will be giving away one $25 gift card to the Joy Clair Store, randomly selected to give everyone a chance to win.
