Happy 4th of July

Hi everyone and Happy 4th of July to all my American blogging friends. I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend. I have a quick and simple 4th of July card to share with you all today.




For my card, I decided to ink up this adorable Pixie from CC Designs (All that Scraps). I colored her with copics (hair: Y21, E31, E33; skin: E00, E11, E13; red: R35, R37, R38; Blue: B32, B34, B37) and then cut her out with scissors and added Stardust Stickles to her wings. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock (Bordering Blue and Real Red). The design paper is also from Stampin Up. I cut the ovals out using my oval nesties and I ran the top oval through my Cuttlebug using my Swiss Dots embossing folder. I then attached the pixie with dimensionals. What do you think?

I'm so sorry I'm so far behind in commenting on all your beautiful creations. With work, the holiday weekend, and yes, my nose stuck in another great book (just finished The Forgotten Garden and The House at Riverton, both by Kate Morton . . . both are must reads!) I've managed to get very behind, but I promise to catch up tomorrow. I have tomorrow off and no plans so hopefully I'll get lots of crafting done too. Have a wonderful day everyone and thanks so much for stopping by. See you back here tomorrow.
