I have this patriotic paper from CTMH for a long time and could never come up with an idea. Today I was on the Hero Arts website and saw a card made with a strip of paper and paper flowers down the strip. I immediately knew I was going to make a patriotic card. The stamps are from Hero Arts. Now that I have the creative juices flowing I hope to make several more cards from the patriotic set. I used Outdoor Denim to stamp the images. I put those little diamond things on the sparkler ad. Also I dabbed Outdoor Denim on the card stock with CTMH's black stubble brush.
