Waltzing with WMS

The theme for today's Waltz is all about 4th of July/Americana.  Frankly, I'm a little nervous as I have no idea what to do.  All I know of the 4th of July are stars & stripes and fireworks.. errr. Hmmm...well, I suppose celebration also equals a tea party!  So, that's what my card is - a 4th of July themed tea party invitation.

I did a little paper piecing, colouring, and a frame using baker's twine.  To add a little interest, I added a couple of cute stars (can't forget to have stars!) at the bottom corner.  I hope I did ok.

Have fun waltzing!

Well done Kary - I think I would be at a loss too - did you know that an important part of the USA history involves the Boston Tea Party?
Blessings
