Happy Fourth!

 Happy Fourth of July-  CAS436 challenge was to show your patriotism so here it went.
 When you take Night of Navy and you spray bleach it takes away the colors and makes this sky at night intense pattern.  But I wasnted a little less intense night sky so I used a finer spray to get a softer splotchy sky.  I wanted the fireworks to be more the focus.

The firework is from an old OLD retired set called July Fourth.  I stamped it with versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder to make a more intense white against the background. Then I used alcohol makers in cheery cobbler and turquoise
to color in some parts of it to look more like fireworks with all their colors.   I also used the Star of Light stamp to create the sparkle streak with silver embossing powder.  Added the 2 lounge chairs diecut from the Seasonal Layers thinlits- because we always take our lounge chairs to watch the fireworks, as we will tonight!
My friend Lynne sends me wonderful cards for almost every holiday.  I do not know how she finds the time with her busy life. And then I got this beautiful pop up card for the fourth and I was blown away and I had to share it with you all.  I want that sparkle fireworks die if such thing exists.  What a perfect way to celebrate. 
I absolutely loved it.  Thanks, Lynne!
