Whimsical Designs "Getting Patriotic" Challenge

Hooray for the Red, White and Blue!!!!!

This week in celebration of the upcoming 4th of July holiday, we are "Getting Patriotic" over at Whimsical Designs. Create any project and use the colors red, white, and blue.

Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is Eureka Stamps with the winner able to choose 5 digis from the shop!!!!

For my card I used #19601 Liberty Balloon Holder, which you can purchase here. I printed her twice, once on Copic blending paper and once on patterned paper for her dress. 

After coloring her and paper piecing her dress, I attached her to a piece of red card stock. I punched two tiny holes, above and below her hand, so that I could run a stick pin through. Now she can hold my sentiment banner attached to a star stick pin. 

My sentiment is from Stephanie's Whimsical Fun Vol 1, one of my favorite "go to" sentiment stamp sets!!!

A couple more sheets of patriotic patterned paper attached to my card base, some "Glory Days" ribbon from my stash, and my image attached with Pop Dots and my card is finished.

Supplies used: card stock - white, red; patterned papers - Liberty Stars, Silver Stars, and Glitter Bursts all from Freedom by Reminisce; digital image - Eureka Stamps; Copic markers; Pebbles chalk; sentiment stamp - Whimsical Fun Vol 1 by Whimsical Designs; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; stick pin - Little Yellow Bicycle; ribbon - my stash, Pop Dots

The design team has some fun patriotic projects to spark your creative mojo, so hop on over to Whimsical Designs and lets get this party started!!!!!
