July 4th Decorations

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by today, I'm honored to have you here. I've just put the decorations up ahead of America's birthday tomorrow and as well as the Patriotic candy cups I shared with you earlier in the week I've created a coordinating banner and have also added in some adorable cupcakes I made from card for last year.

Here's the overall view, the pics are of my two youngest kiddos :)

The banner was created using the Crafter's Companion embossing board, Special Treat, with the stars again punched from metallic sticker sheets and scraps of white card. The letters this time are silver peel-offs and I've added Fiskars eyelets and red spotty ribbon from my stash to complete the banner. Here's a close up...

The cupcakes were also embossed using another Crafter's Companion board, Springtime Sweets and Cupcake Treats. The stars were punched from more scraps of card. Here's a close up of those too, which show the embossing...
