This card was made using this week's sketch from Mojo Monday. I discovered that they are having a fantastic giveaway this week. The theme for July's Magnolialicious Mingle is 4th of July or Red-White-and Blue. Hence another reason to make this card. I hope I don't spoil someone's surprise by posting before mailing.
The puppy is an adorable image by Priscilla Heaton aka Priscilla Styles. I paired it with Tilda Holding Egg Basket by Magnolia. I had to shrink her down though to scale it to the puppy. The Flag is a stamp from Sparkle and Sprinkle. I placed a cut out using Tilda Lace Die (also Magnolia) I colored everything with copics and put stickles on the stars, balloons, lace die and other places. Flower soft is in the basket and on the ground. I handmade a tiny flag and attached it to a toothpick that I had cut down. The circle is vellum which I sprayed with PK Glitz Ritzy Ditz. USA is from another stamp set from Sparkle and Sprinkle. The heart is done using a Creative Memories punch. I put holes in it using my big bite and covered it with 3D Crystal Lacquer and China Red Glitter from PK Glitz. The owners of this store decided to go out of business. I am going to have to find new glitter when I run out:( I made faux stitching with a distress pen and inked the edges with Barn Door Distress Ink.
This card is going into the following challenges:
