Your Scrapbook Place Patriotic Blog Hop


It's that time of year when watermelons are chillin', grills are heating up, firecrackers are ready to light, and Americans celebrate with "Star-spangled happiness and banner waves of pride" (Cherishe Archer)!
Welcome to Your Scrapbook Place Blog Patriotic Blog Hop!  The theme is love of America and the color RED.  If you're coming here from Shannon's Blog, you are on the right path.  If you lose your way, you can start fresh at Your Scrapbook Place.
Designers are using a special image from one of their own, Pammie Lehto. 
 
Today I made this card in hopes of capturing the picnics, firecrackers, and the love of America and the celebration of Independence (4th of July). 
 

 
Recipe:
Digi Image by Pammie Lehto
Cardstock - Coordination and Prism 
Copic Markers 
Copic Opaque White
Copic Multiliner
Mrs. Grossman's Stickers (these fireworks really shimmer!)
Pop Dots
Tombow glue runner

I printed the image twice and used one to cut out some of the flowers so I could pop them in front giving a more dimensional look.  

Copic colors used are: R24, R27, R29, B04, B05, B29, Y13 Y19, YG09, YG67, G05, G09, E71, E59, E71, E77, E89, W1, W3, C3.

One lucky hopper will win this digi, as well as a patriotic-themed Goody Bag!
Each participating designer is in the running for prizes, too, so leave a little love at each blog along the way.
Now off you go to your next blog which is Anna's Scrappening.

  2. Sue absolutely love the Nighttime look of your card! It really makes the whole image pop-and how clever of you to put a blanket under the barrel!! Stay cool!

    1. Thanks Linda,
      I just wish I could color these better. I guess it is practice and more practice that I need (and better control of my hands so they don't jerk and shake) but I will be working on it. Happy 4th to you.
