Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge!

I know...the first thing you're going to think is, "Wow, it's a little chancy to use an American holiday card as an entry into a blog that's based in Australia!" Hey, I think the Outback is as wonderful as any part of the world, the Great Barrier Reef is amazing, and that huge red rock is mind-blowing! It is one of my 5 Top Places I want to go to someday.  But then again, I'm where I am...Phoenix, Arizona, USA.  Not too far from the Grand Canyon, we, too, have beautiful beaches (somewhere, LOL!) and that Mt. Rushmore really impressed me as a youth!  At least I used "Australian Sunrise" as the font!
So without any more excuses, Claire, I have entered my "Happy 4th" card for the sketch challenge this month.
Hope you'll forgive.
I chose to fill my basket with stars! To make the scallops, I simply punched one inch dark blue circles and covered half with the ribbon strip. Now I have to make about a dozen more if I want to send them out in July!

       This photo will be back online after July 13th!
Waltzing Mouse Stamps; Bountiful Baskets Additions
JoAnn's; ribbon
Bazzil cardstock
Creative Imaginations stickers; "Liberty"

As I mentioned above, this card will be entered in the challenge at the
Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge, and also
The Paper Variety (Stars)
