Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July to each of you. I hope your 4th is filled with family and love. My thoughts to each of you who are or have been in the paths of the fires raging in the west. I pray that the fires will soon be under control. I am thinking of my family who are away today. I miss our times together.  My card is a digi from Saturated Canary. I also used a Taylor Expression stamp for the stars and swirls. I added some pretty flowers from WOC. I found a paper pad that is all occasion. I loved the 4th of July paper.
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: (Alan Jackson)
Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day?
Were you in the yard with your wife and children
Or working on some stage in L.A.?
Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke
Risin' against that blue sky?
Did you shout out in anger, in fear for your neighbor
Or did you just sit down and cry?
Did you weep for the children who lost their dear loved ones
And pray for the ones who don't know?
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
And sob for the ones left below?
Did you burst out with pride for the red, white and blue
And the heroes who died just doin' what they do?
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
And look at yourself and what really matters?
