I used pretty red, white and blue papers on a red base card. Inside the card is a white insert with the 'celebrate' die cuts in red and blue on the bottom. I shadowed the sentiment -- one just looked so plain! Also, at the top of the white insert I added a 4" x 1/2" strip of patterned paper that you can't see. Well, you can see a tiny, tiny corner of the strip.
I'll be posting this card to Festive Friday Challenge #FF0041
Have a great weekend!
