 Today is Papertrey Ink's blog hop: A Touch of Gold; and I decided to play along.  I embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder and added gold pen to the littlest stars in the fireworks blooms.  I also edged the white panel with gold pen, but it doesn't show up at all from the front.  Oh well.

PTI Blog Hop--a touch of gold (June 25th only)
Raisin Boat--4th of July
Brown Sugar #47--summer (to me the 4th of July marks the Unofficial start to summer)
Crafty Catz #188--pick and mix: anything goes OR add some embossing just for fun (I used heat embossing on the sentiment and the stripes in the background)
Eureka #45--Summertime fun (is there anything that says summer more than relaxing and watching the fireworks?)
Get Inky #7--red, white, blue
Our Daily Bread Designs #160--patriotic or red, white, and blue
Clearly iStamp Challenge #1-red white and blue

Stamps: Cloud 9 Designs patriotic set (got it for 97 cents at JoAnn's!!!  Big time score!); Papertrey Ink "Distressed Stripes" embossed with clear powder on the card base
Dies: Verve "Pennant Trim Die" and the tiny stars added to the fireworks are cut from the "Scalloped Trim Trio" star die--they were the perfect size; spellbinders classic ovals large
