...(n.) The state or quality of being independent; freedom from dependence

Whether you are celebrating the independence of our country or a personal independence of some kind, I hope you have a fabulous day!

I saw this cute pinwheel card and thought it would make a great card for my 4th of July post.

I randomly stamped Night of Navy with star stamps from several different sets using white craft ink, then used the XL Bird Punch and punched out the bodies. [sounds kind of creepy said that way] :) I adhered them to the Cherry Cobbler circle, and then layered that with Whisper White stamped with a Cherry Cobbler star. Celebrate was stamped on the 5/8" satin ribbon in Night of Navy. The drinking straw was cut down to size and adhered with mini glue dots. The pinwheel was attached with pop-up dots.

!!Happy 4th!!
