Ok, so I used 2 different cartridges for this challenge. The little boy in the wagon is from A CHILDS YEAR and 4th of July is from STAND AND SALUTE. There are stars in the vellum background, 2 on the little flag and 2 more on the wagon. For the stripes I pop dotted a piece of striped ribbon making it look like it flowers in the breeze behind the little boy.


  1. Such a cute card, love the patriotic theme!

  2. So cute. Love the cut -one of my favorites. Love how you added some details to it. Great card.
