Hello Crafty Friends,
I hope you all enjoyed the Fireworks for the 4th of July and all the great food that comes with it!! I meant to post this card yesterday but completely forgot and so I will share it today!

I created this card for the Color Q Challenge , My Sheri CraftsPaper Playtime, and Die Cuttin Divas challenges.  I hope you will visit these challenge blogs for inspiration.  Thank you for visiting and until next time, Enjoy!!
The butterflies are from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, I then added some Stampin' Up! pearls for an added touch.
The Top Note is an exclusive die to Stampin' Up! I had to use the classic Top Note Die for this card since I haven't used in a while, The Top Note die cut is in Poppy Parade and Whisper White card stock.
