Stars and Stripes


Happy 4th of July!!

     This little cutie from Purple Onion Designs is ready to celebrate too.  His name is Bubbly.  Isn't that a fun name.  Here are the markers I used to color him.

Copics Used:
Bubbly E33, E35, E53, R20, R30, R29
sparkler N3

     This was my second attempt at this card.  My first design was a stinker so I went to Pinterest for some inspiration and found this great card by Angela Maine.  Like her, I drew myself a template for the starburst design.  The large stars were cut with a Sizzix die and the small ones with one from Simon Says Stamp.
On the inside of the card I used a couple more Purple Onion Designs stamps.


     I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Sweet Stampin'--bears
Seize the Birthday--red, white, and blue
Cards in Envy--red white and blue

     Hoping you all have a fabulous weekend whether you're celebrating the 4th or not.
     Be blessed!

Supplies:
Paper--Bazzill, Recollections Foil, Recollections, Copic Xpress-it Blending card
Stamps--Purple Onion Designs Bubbly bear with Sparkler, Fireworks, and Let's Celebrate sentiment from Stacey Yacula's Sweet Occasions collection, birthday sentiment from her A Beautiful Day collection
Ink--Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Black Onyx
Tools--Sizzix Stars #2, Simon Says Stamp Holiday Shapes and Stitched Rectangle dies
