Happy holiday weekend, crafty friends!

I know all my American buddies will be recovering from a late night watching fireworks.
Here in Canada, we celebrated earlier this week on July 1st. In fact, I had a four-day weekend last week, as the hospital I work at mandated a "slow-down" day this past Monday. No complaints here!

So here's the current sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
That big circle is kind of intriguing...reminded me of a sunrise or sunset.

 I cut a big orange circle from patterned paper and then stamped a beautiful sentiment from Verve. It was anchored with some arrows (strip of DP and washi tape), and a big bright feather cut from the same DP. The bird taking flight, is a piece of embossible metal, from Provocraft. I ran it through an embossing folder, then tinted it with alcohol markers.
I kind of like the collage-look!

Get out there and enjoy the weather!
Happy crafting,
