Victorine Originals Challenge #4 ~ 4th of July

Happy Friday!  Today is the start of a new challenge at the Victorine Originals blog with the theme of 4th of July.  Here is the card that I created for inspiration!
I started by stamping the VO Firework Explosion stamp with Versamark on white cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then die cut it out with a GMD stitched rectangle die and inked around the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink.
I then took Distress Inks in Festive Berries, Antique Linen, and Salty Ocean and created color bursts on the separate fireworks.  I used a paper towel to wipe the excess ink off of the white embossing.
Here is a close up of the details of the stamped panel on the finished card.
I added a layer of red metallic paper from DCWV's Bright & Pastel foil stack.  It is die cut with a GMD scalloped stitched rectangle die.  I added a sentiment from Victorine Originals' All Occasion Set.  It was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and I used my stamping tool to align it.  
The embellishments I used were Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine and Patriotic Sparkle Enamel Dots
So, now on to the details on how to play along with the challenge...
Head on over to the Victorine Originals blog and check out their challenge post. You have two weeks to enter your project/s that follow this theme. They do not have to use Victorine Originals stamps on them. We can't wait to see what you create!
