America's Birthday

     New challenge starting today at Doodle Garden and running throughout July.  Our theme is "Patriotic" and we include any country.  I happen to live in the US so I did a card that would work for 4th of July but the colors are year 'round patriotic colors.  Obviously, the image would work for any kind of celebration, certainly any birthday.


     I colored with ProMarkers and Copics, die cut the image and the sentiment, and matted each one with red CS.  Everything was mounted on an embossed card front, and I added the satin bows in red and blue.  The one pearl sewn onto the blue bow seemed enough.  A simple, masculine card.  :-D

     I'm playing in my craft room all three days this long weekend because I have 3 days of extremely busy work starting on Monday.  This is a short post but, after all, it is the second one for today.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

  1. Truly a darling card to celebrate the 4th. Love all the little bows. You are the queen of the perfect little bows. Rained hard all day on the 4th but we planned for that. Beach house is ok from the hurricane . The big party is scheduled for today.
