4th of July


Independence Day is getting close and there are lots of calls for cards in red, white and blue. So, I made mine today. This cute fun image is Zoe Celebrates from Make It Crafty. She sure is excited. She is colored with Copic Sketch markers (B18, B26, B41, B45, E00, E01, E31, E33, E53, R27, R29, Y26, Y32) and Copic Spica pens (Sky Blue, Red, Buttermilk). The CS is Stampin Up and the DP is by Best Creations. I used Spellbinder Nestabilities in the Square and Scalloped Square. The ribbon and punches are from Stampin Up. The stars are cut out with my Cricut using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I also used a Cuttlebug Stars embossing folder on the white squares.

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:
