Sorry this is a bit early, but I've tons to get done tonight and don't want to be rushed in the morning.  This is terrible, but I'm going out of town for the weekend, so you won't hear from me Friday through Sunday, but I promise to comment on all when I get back.

I know it is a bit late to be making 4th of July cards, but you can do fireworks in so many different ways and for so many different reasons.  So, my challenge for you this week is to make a project with fireworks on it.  How you make them is up to you.

Here are a few different examples for you:
7-2-14 SZ Fireworks 1 (299x400).jpg 
This one I just dry embossed and rubbed with a bit of fine sandpaper.
7-2-14 SZ Fireworks 2 (400x314).jpg 
This one I used a stencil and some of my fun sparkly paint and sponged.  The sentiment uses a sparkly ink, too.  Also sponged around the edges with a different sparkly paint.
7-2-14 SZ Fireworks 3 (400x324).jpg 
This one I used a flower die that I thought had "firework" potential and cut shimmer paper to make my fireworks.
7-2-14 SZ Fireworks 4 (308x400).jpg 
This is actually a Christmas embossing folder that I used different Sakura Stardust pens on to give it color and sparkle.

See, so very many ways to do fireworks and I didn't even use rhinestones, fireworks stamps, etc.  Now, what can you come up with?

Not an over achiever, just needed different ideas to present.  [rolleyes]  Besides, I've been using up my card stash and need some more.  (Boy, that sounds bad.  I am NOT an addict.[nono])

Golda, who are you REALLY trying to convince?  LOL!  They are all nice.  Sometimes we need more that one sample to jump start our creativity!

Impressive samples, Golda. I really like seeing that fireworks can be created with some unexpected stamps! Fun!

I saw fireworks done with a flower stamp this week.  I can't wait to see what you all use for your fireworks!

Terrie, that is beautiful!  I love how you did the stripes and all the texture you added, too.  Wonderful fireworks!

Okay, Tabitha and I are leaving first thing in the morning and won't be back until Sunday sometime.  I'll comment on everyone's by Wednesday morning.

I can't find the card that used a flower as fireworks, but Pinterest has tons of ideas using flowers, stars, rosettes, colors, etc. for fireworks.  They can be birthday, thinking of you, you're special, etc. cards, too.

I've been gone for 3 days, come back and I have nothing to comment on.  [bawl]  You have a couple more days to do this, my friends.  As my examples show, fireworks can be for any occasion, not just 4th of July.
