Red, White & Blue Blog Hop

Happy Saturday!
Welcome to the Red, White & Blue Blog Hop!

I am so happy that you could join us on this hop!
If you arrived here from Meagan @ Thoughts of Scrapbooking, you are in the right spot.
If you just happened to stumble across the hop today on my blog and would like to start at the beginning, then just hop on over and see Joy at Joy's Life.

For my project, I decided to make a little gift and card to give to someone on the 4th of July.

Here is the card:

I used some little fireworks from the Silhouette store and popped up the middle one with some foam adhesive to add a little dimension. I embossed my white layer that is on my card base with my swiss dots embossing folder.
Before I embossed though, I stamped my sentiment.
My sentiment came from the Yummy Pun Stamp Set from Joy's Life Stamps.

Here is the inside of the card:

For my greeting inside, I used sentiments from the 
Everyday Occasions as well as the Holiday Occasions stamp sets from Joy's Life Stamps.

Here is the gift that goes along with the card:

My box also came from the Silhouette online store and I added some fun noise makers

Here is a picture of the card and gift together:
