Happy 4th of July!

We had a wonderful 4th of July! We ended up going to Los Angeles for the weekend. My MIL's birthday is on 7/4, so some of the family went to her house for a family gathering and BBQ. Lots of fun and we got to see fireworks there too! It was long, and a bit exhausting but I'm sure we would do it again in a heart beat!
Below is the card that I made my MIL for her birthday. I was having a bad time making this simple card ... believe it or not! The original card (2 cards actually) had a different background card, it had music notes. It was perfect! But then my idea to add stuff turned into a disaster. I wanted to sew in red, and blue curves but the sewing machine thread kept coming out of the
needle and just making holes, not good. So after making my 3rd card, I decided to leave out the thread but it would have been so cute! So I was a bit bummed out at the final result.
