"Oh Say Can you See" 4th of July Blog Hop

Happy Fourth of July!! Welcome to the Scrapbook News and Review “Oh Say Can You See 4th of July Blog Hop.” If you came from Peggy's Blog you are on the right track! If you didn't you may want to hop to Srapbook News and Review Card Universe and start at the beginning.

This is a pretty simple card that I dressed up with some Maya Road mist and some glitter.





















Supplies - Cardstock - Bazzil, Pattern Paper - Scenic Route, Chipboard - Scenic Route, Stickers - Pink Paislee, Creative Imaginations, Ribbon - Creative Imaginations, Mist - Maya Road, Glitter - ClearSnap

The first thing I did was use my red Maya Road mist to spray the chipboard stars. While it was drying, I sewed red cardstock paper to the card.
















After they were dry, I used my quick glue pen and added random dots and then poured silver glitter on the wet glue. I shook off the extra glitter and using pop dots added them to the front of the card. A bit of ribbon and a simple sentiment and viola!














It's hard to really see the glitter but here is a bit of a close up.




















I wanted to offer a lil' red, white and blue for one of my blog readers. It's hard to see in the photo: Scenic Route stickers, Heidi Swapp puffy stickers, Jenni Bowlin and Maya Road journaling tags, glitz gems, flowers, buttons, bling, paper clips and ribbon! If you are interested, just leave a comment. RAK will be open until Monday, midnight.















Next on the hop is Winnie. Check out what she created!

I hope you are all having a super fabulous and safe holiday. Thank you to all the American soldiers and families who have sacrificed so much, in the past and in the present, for our freedom. God bless you and God bless America!!
