Patriotic FireWorks Card

Created this FireWorks card using Cricut cartridge Independence Day Celebrate. Used vellum over a scrap piece of firecracker scrapbook paper for background. Added some stars I had from a previous project. On front of card I used Tim Holtz Celebration Words Block 'Celebrate.' On inside of card I heat embossed TH Flag stamp with a mix of red/white/blue embossing powder.
