Patriotic Summer Decor

Few things conjure up thoughts and memories of summer then 4th of July, don't you agree?
I love 4th of July festive colors and indoor/outdoor decor but don't have much of it.
I created this little plaque to start my own collection of 4th of July decor.

I started with a plain piece of wood and covered it with some paper from Authentique Paper's Genuine line.

I then added to the background using the hearts from the stamp set called Gratitude and embossed them with Metallic Platinum Sparkle.

All the butterflies are from the wonderfully fun set called Build a Butterfly.

Each butterfly and coordinating smaller butterflies are embossed in the following 3 powders:

I love the way this turned out...what do you think?

Do you like to make things for the holidays?
What have you got planned for the summer?
I just hope to get through the day without melting!!
I hope you have enjoyed today's post.

Happy Thursday Darlings! I hope you have all been keeping well. Have you ever tried to emboss your stamps in another colour other than black...
