Summer Fun

Summer Fun - It is time for a new challenge at Craft Your Days Away and this time we are challenging you to make something Red, White and Blue. Isn't that a great theme? Not only is it the colors of the flags of many countries, but it also has a nautical feel to it and so great for those summer projects.

My starry SP was some old paper that my DIL no longer wanted. It was precut into stripes, so was a little difficult for many projects, was perfect for this card.

My image is Cali Girl from Saturated Canary.  She was colored with Copics and I added some Stickles to her bikini. Her sunglasses received some Diamond Glaze to make them shiny. She was a fun image to color. Her hair was particularly fun.

My flower is gathered ribbon with a gemstone in the middle. I stuck the stick pin in the ribbon. Many of my beads, to include the red butterfly bead was purchased from Judy at Pizzazz Aplenty. She has the best prices that I have seen for stick pin and bead supplies. She ships internationally, so all of our overseas friends can take advantage of her inexpensive prices.

My Sentiment is from Hot Off the Press. I stamped it in blue, then heat embossed with SU's Iridescent embossing powder. I love how it sparkles!
