Happy 4th to everyone here in the US!! Hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend.  We are spending a quiet day- a trip to the movies to see Toy Story 3 and then a barbeque and fireworks tonight.
My card today is in honor of the the 4th and my cute little image is from Digital Design Divas.  They are a new digital stamp company and have some very cute images- you need to check them out!!

My sketch inspiration for this card comes from Friday Sketchers.


Isn't she just the cutest.  You can click on the image to get a closer view. When I use her again I will have to make her more of the focal point- too much going on in this card with all the layers, lol.  All the dp you see came from the same sheet!  The dp is by Creative Imaginations. All card stock is bazzil and I use my stars cuttlebug folder for the navy strip.  The only other embellie is the red and white striped ribbon.

Challenges:
Friday Sketchers:  the sketch
Stamp Something:  colors of your flag
Frosted Designs: red, white, & blue, stars & stripes
Stamp Insanity: red, white & blue
For Fun Challenges: patriotic pride
PaperTake Weekly:  In Stitches
Scrap Creations:  Americana

Hope you all have a great 4th wherever you may be!
