The design is based on Amber's new sketch for July in the Viva La Verve forum at Splitcoast:
The sentiment panel layers just multiplied out of control while I was working on this, it seemed that any way I layered things, it needed a dash of color in between. So it starts from the bottom as a Curvy Bookplate die, then a Jotted Heart die, two layers of Victoria lace, two strips of dp and then two layers of Charming Oval dies. I attached the glittered star with a dimensional and made the Zva rhinestone flourishes come out of both sides. The stamp is from one of my 'very well worn' Verve sets, Big Wish.
ETA: This card is being featured at Creative Sketches as inspiration for their patriotic theme. Check out the site here.
