Kismet Independence with Danni Reid

 i love to send cards (and receive them) for the 4th of july.  the cards become part of the table/mantel decor in my home.   i love to see the cards & say a prayer for all those serving (my bil has served 3 tours in Iraq already).  what a perfect & beautiful celebration of the birth of & love for our country and the men and women serving to protect it. 
since i enjoy sending so many cards for the 4th, i have to start creating them now so i can get them shipped and received in time to enjoy them for the 4th of july (which is on a sunday this year). 
i KNEW that the amazing new Kismet line from Glitz would be perfect for my cards this year.  i love the blue in this line paired with the rich red & brown, it's gorgeous & gave such a fun feel to the cards this year.
