Celebrating You 4th of July Series

My crafty project for you today is this simple, yet awesome, Celebrating You card. I loved designing this project! One of the things that I enjoy about this project is the ability to use it for occasions other than the 4th of July!  The simplicity of it makes it an easy card to duplicate! This card was made with the Perennial Birthday stamp set. I added two pieces of the Regals 6"x6" Designer Series Paper, a bit of  Whisper White Flax Ribbon, and some Clear Faceted Gems that I colored with Real Red Stampin' Blends.
