I was tinkering with submissions for publications... the hard part with that is that they typically want you to create, say, a July 4 card when there's 7 inches of snow on the ground. You really have to have some serious inspiration (or a stash that works).
I used some of my new purchases and some older scraps for this card. I really like how it turned out... doesn't necessarily need to be July 4 to get this one...
