Happy 4th of July to all my American friends!

It's also the first Wednesday of the month and time for a new Scrapy Land Challenge.  The theme is always anything goes using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.

As you can tell, I went with a Patriotic theme and used the following dies:
Die-Versions: Fireworks (other patriotic choices are here)
Memory Box: Rectangle Basics set

Start off by die cutting a solid piece of cardstock with the larger rectangle die.  Then go down a couple sizes and die cut a piece of acetate (or recycled packaging material like I did) and use a corner rounder to round the corners.

Next I added the sentiment to the acetate by stamping in Archival ink (Manganese Blue).

I die cut the Fireworks die cut twice, once from fun foam and once from white cardstock.  I colored the cardstock using Copic markers and then added Clear embossing powder over the whole thing for a shiny look.  After this was completed, I adhered this to the fun foam for added dimension.

As a final step, I added more texture by adhering Scarlet Fragments (by Stampendous) randomly around the background.

Now it's your turn to join in on the fun.  There are two winners and both will receive a $10 gift certificate to go shopping at Scrapy Land.  You have until July 15 to upload your projects.
