Hello and Happy July!!!

Today I am sharing my 4th of July card over at She's A Sassy Lady!
I saw something similar on Pinterest and wanted to figure out how I could re-create it with my Silhouette Cameo.
Here is the LINK to the pin.
I am not a stamper so my card looks a bit different:
I am new to Cami (my cameo) and having a little trouble transferring my knowledge of Gypsy to Cami.....but I keep trying!!!
I found some images from the Silhouette Store that I wanted to use for my card.
I used a stars and stripes banner, statue of liberty silhouette and fireworks. I left the word Fireworks!! and layers off the mat.
I used scrap cardstock in red, white and kraft brown to cut out the images.
Here is one example of me most likely doing this the hard way: I ungrouped the banner image and carefully drug each inside cut off the mat in order to create a white background banner. With Gypsy, you just hide contour. With Cami each tiny piece is a piece once you ungroup.
Another example: I just cut out two banners, one in red and one in blue as ungrouping and moving the tiny pieces off the mat was driving me crazy!!!
I cut out lady liberty in brown kraft paper and inked her up with shades of green.
I adhered a piece of silver carstock on top of my blue mat. I taped twine and ribbon to the back of the blue cardstock before I adhered it to the front of the card.
I layered the fireworks on the card. I added some silver stickles to the centers and edges.
I adhered the red and blue banner flags to white banner flags and pop dotted them on the twine.
I pop-dotted Lady Liberty in front of the fireworks.
Here is a side view of the pop-dots.
My card is different from the one I pinned, but I like the 3D look better.
I hope you have a safe and Happy 4th of July for those of you who celebrate it!!!
Thank you Sheila for having me over today!!
