PPA#49 Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July weekend! This is my take on the PPA#49 Inspiration Challenge here.
I started with a card stock base of Crumb Cake(formerly Kraft). I stamped the circles from the Level 2 Hostess set, Apple Blossoms in Crumb Cake with the Stamp-a-ma-jig. I stamped the "happy" definition from Define Your Life in Cherry Cobbler and "July" from Full Calendar in Cherry Cobbler too. I punched out the July with the 1 3/8 in by 5/8 inch large oval punch and layered that onto a Night of Navy punched with the 1 3/4 in by  7/8 inch large oval punch. The number 4 is from the retired Big Deal Numbers and I added the "th" and "of" with the Night of Navy Stampin' write marker. I used the paper piercing tool to pierce some circles to the strip of Whisper White card stock. The Perfect Polka-dots textured impressions folder was used to add the dots to Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White and Night of Navy card stock. And finally, I punched out three stars with the Extra-Large Star punch and popped them up with Stampin' dimensionals.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Apple Blossoms,Define Your Life, Full  Calendar, Big Deal Numbers(retired)
Papers: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy
Inks: Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake Classic stampin' pad, Night of Navy Stampin' write marker
Accessories: Extra large star punch, 1 3/8 by 5/8 inch and 1 3/4 by 7/8 inch Large oval punches, paper piercing tool, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Perfect polka-dots textured impressions embossing folder, Stampin' dimensionals
