Land That I Love

I love summer!   My family purchased a little piece of heaven on a nearby lake when I was very little.  I have spent every summer on the lake ever since.   It has been time I have treasured.  It has even inspired the name for my blog.

A long time tradition on the lake is approaching fast.  Every Forth of July,  the little town of Hammondsport puts on a firework display.  The actual fireworks are not extraordinary, but there is something memorizing about watching each firework reflect off the water.  The whole lake lights up.   It is an event that is close to my heart. 

I wanted to make a card to celebrate the Land (and Lake) that I love.  The theme for this month's challenge is BLING!!  That is right ladies! Get the sparkles and rhinestones out, it is time to Get OUR BLING ON!! 

 I used the Tilda Liberty Stamp.  The firework stamp is also by Magnolia.  The verse is by a small company called Heather. 

The oval and scalloped matte (used glitter paper) was cut using Spellbinders. I used Copic Spica to trace over the lines on the firework stamp to add some sparkle to the background.  I also put some Liquid Pearls on the oval around Tilda.
