Pedal cars and stars....

July is one of my favorite months.
Not only is it my mom's and brother's birthday month,
but also the month when we celebrate our country's independence.

I don't normally make cards for this occasion,
but our campground is hosting a Christmas in July
so I made a few cards to hand out to the seasonal campers.

Although this is a relatively simple card, I loved the end result.
The back is computer generated.
The front consists of 4 blue scallop squares
covered by a red plaid mat with punched corners. 
The boy in the pedal car is from ACY and the star is Home Decor.
My signature MS branch punch adorns the top.

I hope my camping friends enjoy this little gift!
I will be entering this in the
 GoFish - Patriotic
 My Craft Spot - July 4th
PaperPlaytime - Red, White, Blue
Celebrate the Occasion - 4th of July
challenges this week.

Just a note.....we won the Christmas in July decorating contest at
our campground:  Forest Ridge Campground and Cabins in Marienville, PA
