    • Hey thanks! Had another idea and it didn’t work. Does that ever happen over at Artchoo? Luckily this one did – yay!

  1. Very cool idea to make the fireworks! I love that you saw them in a shell! Can’t wait to try that for a card next year! Love the print! The words and idea to use 13 is fab. Hope you had a great 4th.

    • Thanks! That is the biggest compliment!

      BTW, I mentioned you in my recent Marriage Mini Rut post.
