Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge ~ Red White and Blue

Happy Canada Day everyone!! It is July 1st and Canada turns 150 today so I swapped out the blue for black on my card and am celebrating this milestone in our country's history with a card.   Plus, it is also our 21st wedding anniversary so lots to celebrate today!!

Picked up the maple leaf stamp, punch and the sentiment from Micheal's dollar bin and used last weeks Paper Players sketch for my card.  May just use this as my anniversary card with a fun sentiment on the inside to the effect of "We haven't been married for 150 years, but aren't you glad we get free fireworks compliments of Canada on every anniversary".

Enjoy celebrating Canada Day my Canadian followers, and Happy 4th of July to all my American followers!  We are SO blessed to live in our countries and have SO much to be grateful for.  I would be remiss if I didn't thank those who serve in our armed forces as it is their sacrifice that allows us the freedoms we have.  Thank you for your service ♥

Off to enjoy BBQ ribs a la hubby and then the local Canada Day festivities and fireworks.  Going to be a fun filled day indeed :) 

Have a fabulous week everyone and I look forward to seeing your creations in our gallery.
