Happy Birthday America!

 Hello this is Kim from Scrapin' Mom of One Inspiring Little Boy, filling in while Emma takes care of her family! Emma has ALWAYS told all of her design team and all of you ~ "Family ALWAYS comes first!" Well she is ABSOLUTELY right! So during this time the design team and some other wonderful crafters are going to take care of her! So keep sending the prayers and healing thoughts coming her family's way!!!!

Okay, for my card today I wanted to celebrate America's Birthday! I still think our country is AMAZING! I salute ALL the men and women who continue to keep us safe and free every day! The sacrifices that they and their families make are truly immeasurable! THANK YOU!!! I also know a few people whose birthday either falls on or around this holiday! So I decided to keep the colors traditional ~ I LOVE red, white and blue! I wanted to use the truffle image from "All Around Accessories" stamp set! This set comes with 6 big images for you to either color or paper piece! So I used my Spellbinders and layered them. I colored my truffle image using my Copic markers. I also wanted to use one of my FAVORITE My Creative Time stamp set and dies ~ "Teeny Tag Greetings w/ Teeny Tag Dies" .  This is a MUST have stamp set! It just adds that PERFECT touch to any card! I added some twine, ribbon, lollipop stick, a rhinestone and stickles ~ just to add that little bling! Simple, was, and quick to put together!


Materials Used:
My Creative Time ~ "All Around Accessories" ~ truffle image
My Creative Time ~ "Teeny Tag Greetings w/ Teeny Tag Dies" ~ sentiment & dies
Spellbinders
Paper ~ Paper Trey Ink and Stampin Up
Ribbon ~ Paper Trey Ink
Twine ~ Twinery
