Cards With Bella Blvd

Happy Saturday!  
I'm bringing my Bella Blvd "Cards on Thursdays" just a couple of days late to the blog.
It seems like I'll have a dry-run for a few days and then have four different projects up
on the same day LOL...so I'm trying to spread them all out :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISHES
It seems like squares are all the rage these days and I just had to play along! 
Using a 1.25" square die cut, I created a quilt of colors from the Birthday Girl Collection.
 After mounting them onto a piece of cardstock, I machine stitched down the center of each row.
 I kept the top simple by adding on a couple of chipboard stickers and a "wishes" 
banner under the die-cut shape.

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY
 A small piece of feather gathered and tied made the cutest plume effect to the top of the
 chipboard firecracker! I attached the feather to the chipboard using a Ultra-Thin Glue Dot.
 I built a 4th of July collage using several components from the Alpha+Bits and
Just Write Journaling Stickers. So happy and festive, and I love the idea of displaying it on our
 Patriotic buffet table. Bring on Summer!
