Let's Celebrate--FMS289 and PPC245

May 24, 2017

I am playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  My friend, Linda is the hostess this week. I loved her sketch and knew just what I wanted to create.  With Memorial Day and Fourth of July right around the corner, I was feeling patriotic today.

The Paper Craft Crew has a Tic-Tac-Toe board this week and I always enjoy playing along.  I used the top row:  Bright Colors-Enamel Embellishments-Sparkle   Everyone loves the Red, White and Blue!

My card is created on a white card base.  I used a set of square pinking dies to cut the red frame and the small piece of fireworks paper.  The flag, fireworks and popsicle were stamped then colored with Copic Markers.  I used the Sunny Studio Stars and Stripes stamp set and the matching dies for these items.  I added Wink of Stella for shine and a few enamel stars for fun.  The sentiment is from the same set.  It is stamped in Memento black ink.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
Hope you are having a great day!
