Happy Independence Day, America!

Hope everyone is having a lovely holiday today or at least a good Friday! :D Unfortunately I have to work tonight. BOOOO! hehe I guess I have to do something to keep up with what I spend on stuff, right?

I didn't really have a "plan" when I sat down and made this card. I just picked out some starry and stripey paper and set to making up something.

Don't forget! Today is the last day to enter for my blog candy! Enter on this post: HERE I will draw for it tonight at midnight in California and announce the winner tomorrow.

What I used: Virginia stamp from C.C. Designs that I cut with my Nestabilities and Cuttlebut. And I used the Basic Shapes from Little Paper Shop for the stars and firework. I stamped the stars on my patterned paper and cut those out then mounted them on white circle punched shapes that I sponged ink around the edges. The firework star was stamped on white and then cut out and then I added Stardust stickles. I dotted stickles around on the stars and stripes, too. I paper pieced her pants from the red starry paper and then colored the rest of her with copic markers. I used one of my Martha Stewart punches to punch the edge for added detail and cuttlebugged the red. Added a ribbon and some sponging and piercing and after I glued it all down, I was done!
