Happy 4th of July

Hi Friends
I wish all my fellow United States friends a happy Independence day!  To those troops serving and their families, I say thank you and lift you up in prayer.
I wanted to post on the blog a special card drive that is being done for the troops.  You can head over to the Lawnscaping blog with all the details.  In a nutshell, Laurel Beard, whose husband serves in the military and is currently deployed, is collecting cards to send over to the troops so that they have special cards to send back to their families, and friends.  Please go to the Lawnscaping blog for all the details.  The drive will continue through the end of the month.
My card today isn’t for the card drive, but for our pastor whose birthday is today.  Since his birthday is the 4th of July, I like to incorporate that into the card design.
and a quick view from the side to show how some of the balloons are popped up.DSC_0015
I used some Lawn Fawn stamps to create the card (Enjoy the Ride, Sophie’s Sentiments, and Teeny Tiny Backdrops, Bake me a Cake). 
I wish I would’ve had this card created for the current Lawnscaping challenge which is to use dimension. 
I’ll be posting some cards that I’m sending to Laurel for the card drive. I sure hope you decide to send some in. Let me know if you create something for the card drive, I’d love to see it!
Thanks for stopping in today, have a blessed 4th of July
