Celebrate Today

It's nearly American Independence Day and although I'm in England and won't be celebrating, our theme at The Crafter's Café Challenge Blog this week is Red, White & Blue which is perfect for this occasion. 

Our sponsor this week is:


I have chosen the image 'Twinkles Boo' as the stars and stripes on her onesie fit the theme perfectly.  I've gone with really bold and bright colours for the background paper, and added just a bit more colour with yellow stars.

I've used the following materials to create this card:
  • Card and button from my stash
  • Dovecraft twine
  • 'Perfectly Penned' sentiment from Stampin' Up! 
  • Big Bloomer and patterned papers from the Papermania Spots & Stripes Brights collections
  • ProMarkers - Oatmeal, Soft Peach, Tulip Yellow, Mustard, Sandstone, Caramel, Burnt Sienna, Berry Red, True Blue, Arctic Blue

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
