July 4th Holiday Spools

This is "one" of my favorite out of the box 4th of July cards this year - these are spools from Great Impressions - paper pieced with the matching dp I used to make the frame, a bit of ribbon and three little stars to add some bling.  I think it turned out really cute and despite that it is really not a 4th stamp I made it work for this occasion.   This is  my favorite stamp from Great Impressions because it is so versatile - I have used it for a St.Patrick's card, a thinking of you card, and now the 4th of July card.  The spools are a blank canvas!!! Stampers can be so creative LOL  Challenges:
     JW Scrapshack  - anything goes
     Simply Papercrafts - anything goes
     Stamping Boutique - 1 stamp, 2 DP, 3 embellishments
     Brown Sugar - Red, white and blue
     Crafts for eternity - Red, white, and blue
     Frosted Design - Red, white, and blue with a twist - something old, something new
                                 stamp is old, ribbon is new
     Great Impressions - use your favorite stamp
