Celebrate You

Today, half of the Avocado Arts Pit Crew is sharing projects featuring the July release, Bold Celebrations. Mine is an any-occasion card. I curved the string with clips on my acrylic block and stamped it twice at two different lengths. Then I fussy cut a bunch of flags from patterned paper and randomly adhered them to the clips.

I created my own sentiment by stamping 'celebrate' and 'you' from 'a gift for you'. Then I added different sized rhinestones to various flags to finish the card.

If you'd like to purchase this fantastic set, just click on the graphic above! Avocado Arts would love to see you using their stamps. Remember, there's a publication incentive, too! ;) Don't forget to check out my super-talented team mates for more inspiration with Bold Celebrations.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you're having a lovely weekend!
