Happy July

Happy July 4th 5th 6th!!! 

I am celebrating the 4th of July all week. My plan was to have my Tim Holtz inspired Tag for July done to post on the 4th put didn't quite get it done. I added the flag stamp by cutting the Old Glory Movers and Shapers flag out of foam (I actually used an old mouse pad and glued it to a scrap of acrylic packaging. Then I stamped it with Archival Ink. I also painted Stickles over the fireworks for a little more sparkle.
