Strike up the band...

TGIF my friends!

I'm continuing to have fun making 4th of July inspired cards and this time I pulled out the older Strike Up the Band set from My Favorite Things. I've actually had this set for ages and shamefully this is the first time that I've inked it up. I think one of the things that always held me up is that half of the bunnies in the band march to the left and the other half march to the right, that's fine on a smaller card but I wanted to have them all playing together on this long slimline. I ended up pulling out my handy dandy mirror image stamp to flip three of the bunnies so they were all marching to the right. In the background I added balloons from the Beary Special Birthday set and confetti from the Birthday Buds set to help frame my sentiment and add a festive air to the card. I don't know about you but I can just hear them playing "You're a Grand Old Flag" as they march on down their parade route. :)

Alrighty then, have fun this weekend but be safe!
