"I'm TNT, I'm Dynamite..."

I know I am super early, but thanks to a challenge over at Sentimental Sundays, here are some 4th of July cards.  The challenge is to make a card inspired by a song... my song is "TNT" by AC/DC.

I found these little firecrackers SVG file online.
I cut the file in red, white and blue and ended up with three sets of these cute little firecrackers.  The little fire/flames are from From my Kitchen.

I accented the firecrackers by mounting them on pop-dots onto this wonderful silver shimmer paper. I don't know how well it will show up on the picture but it's a terrific fit for the card. I added some Studio G glitter glue to the top set of sparks and the stars on the center firecracker.

The sentiment is a cute little stamp from Close to My Heart, Seasonal Celebrations. Of course I added gel pen stitches around the black layers of the card and matched it with the black gros grain ribbon that has matching stitches! :)

The background paper is called Game Day by American Traditional Designs.

Here is the inside of the card.  I just had to throw some song lyrics... I LOVE AC/DC.  My husband took me to my very first concert in 2001 to see AC/DC's Stiff Upper Lip tour.  :)
