Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July friends!  I hope you have something fun and festive planned for today!  My family is kicking off the day with our annual neighborhood parade and then we're off to the 4th of July in the Park...tons of fun vendors, food, games and lots more.  We'll wrap up our day with a big family taco feed and fireworks.  I LOVE the 4th of July!
Some of the amazing design team members over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration love the 4th of July too and are sharing their festive creations with us today.  Be sure to check all of them out...they are awesome!
I had some left over items from the June 2014 My Paper Pumpkin and didn't want them to go to waste, so I put them to use in today's card.  I cut the pinwheel paper down to 3"x3" so it fit a little better on the card and turned one of the paper straws into a firework.  What do you think?!?!
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Night of Navy, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, June 2014 My Paper Pumpkin DSP
Ink ~ Real Red
Stamp Set ~ June 2014 My Paper Pumpkin, Be the Star 
Other Supplies ~ Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder
I used this weeks Freshly Made Sketches sketch for this card and was totally inspired by Rita's card this week!
I hope you all have a safe and fabulous 4th of July!
Happy Stamping!
