Hello crafty friends and happy 4th of July to you!
With Canada Day just passed and Independence Day today,
we want you to use the colors of your flag in your design! 

Here's my card:

I let the embossing folder do most of the work.
I even 'painted' over the embossed image with my
Wink of Stella pen!
Oooh! Shimmery!
