SVG Cuts June ATC Swap

there is a monthly ATC Swap.

This month's theme is

A while back, I won a
challenge at 
I was given my choice of $10 Sets.
I chose Celebrate July 4th.  
 So I knew exactly what I wanted to do for this Swap.

I thought I was making a wise choice of papers.  Figured the girl with the red dress needed to be on the blue paper.  And the boy would look good on the flag paper.  Major mistake.  I had the girls done and then went to do the boys and said NO NO NO.  The stripes on the pants and hat are to much for the background paper.  Not much I could do since I had the girls all done, and the backs all put together for the boys.  DUMB.  I never think my paper through as well as I should.  
With this cards, I used my new Grand Calibur for the first time.  I used a polkadot embossing folder on the red paper for the girl and their is hearts on the blue paper of the boy.  Again it doesn't show very well so not thought out very well. 
On the girls I added Icicle Stickles to the sparklers and on the boys I used Gold Stickles on the buttons. Wasn't much room for any other embellishments.  :( 

Thanks for stopping by.
