Happy Birthday America & SimonSays/ Paper Smooches

Happy 4 Th. of July! 
Happy 237 Th. Birthday America!

 I lost this post so I am quickly doing it again in a shorter version. I made this card a long time ago and never posted it. I used the Paper Smooches Sailboat Die , birthday sentiment from
 Papertrey Ink and Lil Inkers stitched banner. I love this die because it is so versatile. 
The theme for Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge is Ocean! Even though you don't see an ocean you know the fish and boat are on and in the Ocean.
I have two sisters that were born a year and a day apart and both missed having their birthday fall on the 4th of July. So this is a birthday card for one of my sisters and ….. a 
Happy Birthday Card to America! 

I hope you all have a wonderful day
and that God will continue to Bless you no matter where you are!


  1. Super cute Marybeth and I LOVE how you were able to use the die cuts from inside the die to make your banner! perfect! Happy 4th Marybeth!
