4th of July week challenge and house update

Hi all,
Hope you're enjoying your long weekend. I've been trying to make a card or two between home projects. Today there's been a change in plan. Luke and his friend will be coming next week to scrape ceilings. Today I'm going to goto Home Depot and pick some paint for my master bathroom. Right now it's this HORRID mint toothpaste color (scroll down to see the offensive color). I'm thinking I might do an apple green or a cocoa brown. We'll see what I come back with.
As for 4th of July challenge cards I did a card using glossy paper with the Joseph's coat technique.

It's a CASE from the SCS tutorial. I used my old stand-by favorite stamp set- Wonderful Wings (Stampin' Up), sentiment from Paper Trey Ink's Mixed Messages. The paper is SU cool caribbean, brilliant blue, white and glossy white card stock. The ribbon is from Michael's. I also made a 3X3 set CASE'ing someone else on a blog (can't remember which one so I'm not going to post that since I can't give credit where credit is due).
Please know that if I ever CASE you it really is an instance of "imitation is the highest form of flattery". Thanks to all the bloggers who provide inspiration!
