Celebrate!

I had a little time this morning and thought I would make a quick card just for today.  It started out to be quick and then turned into a mess...
Let's just say this would NOT qualify for the 10 Minute Craft Dash.   :)

I used the Dandelions from PTI's Botanical Silhouette set, as I have seen others do so often! (Super fun idea for whoever thought of it!)   I added a sentiment from Live Love Life , onto a folded banner turned flag, and then some strips from the Super Strips Background set.  I added some stickles at the end for a little sparkle.

I am entering this card over at Simon Says for the Patriotic themed challenge today!

ETA: I did link this card up to the CAS-olgy Fireworks Challenge!  Thanks Ardyth!

Hope you are all enjoying the day!  The weather is amazing here.  Have a safe and happy 4th!
