Creative Belli Blog –Patriotic plus a Sketch

THIS is the link for Wacky Wednesday at Firecracker Designs by Pamela.
******************************************
For the Creative Belli Blog, our challenge is to make something Patriotic plus to use the following sketch:
Print
I always enjoy a good sketch challenge- and this one was no exception!  I went with the Red/White/Blue theme for the Patriotic part- and I made one card for the 4th and one for a Birthday card.

I used Ranger Distress Inks Worn Lipstick,  Tattered Rose and Brick for the BG, then ‘double bugged’ it using Swiss Dots and I am not sure of the name of the dots folder………. (Technique Junkies technique).  The image(s) are a Freebie thru Saturday over at Firecracker Designs by Pamela colored with Copics B79 and R24 and R29. I added glitz to the flip flops with Copic Spica pens Sky Blue, Red and Clear plus I added a rhinestone gem in the center of each flip flop.  I used SU Mini Mates for the Sentiment. (My husband grew up around boys- he does not understand why we NEED so many colors and pairs of flip flops…………LOL).
I hope you will join us at the Creative Belli Challenge this week!
