Well somehow I think Kathy and I got our communications crossed so no one posted yesterday. Sorry about that one.
I'm here with a card to celebrate the 4th of July. I wanted to get this out this week to my girls since they are leaving for England on July 5th and I always send them Independence Day cards. I think this one will go to Claudia. I wondered when I'd use this stamp...and so happy to have found it in my stash! OH...I did want to tell you about a new fun tool I picked up this weekend. I attached a closeup (the crown) which I colored with the Wink of Stella Brush by Kuretake/Zig. It is so sparkly--I love it!
I'll be entering this card into the Perfect Sentiment Challenge: PSC85 and Sketch and Stash #116. For the Sketch and Stash Challenge we are to let everyone know what new and neglected items we've used. For the neglected items...there are quite a few: The Sweet Innocence image--had it since it came out! The star punches also became useful...I hardly ever use those! I also have some new items: this past weekend I just picked up new patterned paper by Penny Black which I used below (all except the background DP)
This was a great sketch...lots going on...and was so happy to enter a 4th of July card.
Thanks for reading...and will be back with another Independence Day card tomorrow! Margaret
