ISS Blog Hop

Welcome to the InStyle Stamps blog hop.  You should have arrived here from our Guest Designer Tina, but if not, please head on over to the InStyle Stamps blog and start from the beginning.  When you have completed the hop, you should end up back at InStyle Stamps where we would like you to vote for your favorite project. The DT member that receives the most votes will win a prize AND just for voting you also have the chance to win a prize too! 

This month our theme for the hop is PATRIOTIC or Outdoor Activity.
I used the Flag image for my card and colored it in with copics and a silver gel pen.  The background is sponged with two different inks and then I highlighted parts of the fireworks with a silver gel pen and added stickles.  Instead of adding a sentiment, I cut sayings from some Designer Paper and used those instead.  I just had to borrow my daughter's American Girl Star border punch for this one and then added some silver star brads.

I chose this image because we love watching fireworks, and usually get to see them a few times each year.  We are lucky and get to see two major displays in about a week of each other, one being the 4th of July (obviously) and then at a local festival, and I have to say that display is just as good as the one on the 4th.
