~Red/White & Blue ~~Whimsical Wednesdays & Catch the Bug Challenge Card

Hi everyone!

I have a card to share today to enter into a few challenges.
Since it is still baseball season at my house~we are just getting into the playoffs~ and the 4th is fast approaching I decided to incorporate the two for this card.

The paper is Bo Bunny~Liberty Fireworks.

Image is Bugaboo Stamps~I love all their stamps and always have such a hard time deciding which to purchase...but I think this one is an all time favorite!

Stars are a border cut from the Stand and Salute Cartridge at 5" I used the inside cut as well and attached a sparkly brad and foam tape to give it some dimension.

Ribbon is American Crafts and I used 3 Candi's in the bottom corner. I just LOVE these embellishments! They have a sparkle to them that the picture does not show to well.

I colored the image with my copics but in a very easy and simple way. I used 2 markers~B26 and R24.
There is not blending or shading...just straight color :)

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
Whimsical Wednesdays~Let's Get Patriotic (remember you have 2 weeks to enter)
Catch the Bug Challenge~Red/White/Blue & Ribbon

Hope you like my creation for today...It so makes me think of summer!

  9. Hello Jess. Just trying to move along and catch up on commenting. As always your card is fantastic. Bugaboo stamps? I don't think I have every heard of them. I will have to google them because they sure are cute. This card screams All American and I just love it. I really like how you rounded the corners of the paper your image is on. Adds interest. I am so lucky to have you on our DT and love that you play along on your off weeks.
