Happy 4th of July!

 
Hi there!  I hope you and your family have plans to celebrate Independence Day if you are in the US!  We'll be heading over to my brothers later today and our job will be to try and stay cool, eat a lot and ooh and aah at his over the top fireworks!  A tough job but we'll take it!
It's been a while since I've played along with the Retro Sketch Challenge too.  I'll admit that I struggle much more with sketches than I do with color challenges.  Not sure why, but I think I struggle to think out of the box!  So...I was going through a cabinet with a folder of embellishments and decided to pull out these BasicGrey stickers that I've had for a while. Made for a quick birthday card that I am sure will be used quickly with all the boys in my house!  Hope you like it and that you have a fabulous July 4th!

Happy 4th July and say hello to all the family. This is a really fun card and great for a boy card. I think you do a good job of thinking outside the box and here you have a great example of just that x
