Celebration

I'm back with another quick post tonight.  I'm catching up on all the things I didn't get to do over the weekend.  My card is for a bunch of challenges I like to do. It worked out great that several had similar themes.  So here goes. My card is for the Papertake Weekly Challenge #69 (sketch), Joan's Gardens Challenge #24 (red, white and blue, celebration, tag, stripes), Kenny K.'s Krafty Krew Challenge #100 (patriotic- use colors of your flag), Simon Says Stamp Challenge (sporty or patriotic), Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #170 (red, white and blue and sparkle), Incy Wincy Designs Challenge (patriotic- use colors of your flag), Love to Create Challenge #22 (stars and stripes) and the Copic Challenge #46 on Suzanne Dean's Color Me Creative Classroom (big hair).  Phew!!

Here is the Papertake Weekly sketch:


Here is my card for all the challenges:


I started with a card base of GKD Red Hot and layered red, white and blue patterned papers from the October Afternoon Sidewalks and School Days 8x8 pads.  I was able to get my stars and stripes in with these papers.  My sassy image is Jasmine from Kenny K.  I printed her on Copic X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added sparkle to her top, shoes and glasses with Red Stickles and a Red Spica pen.  I made the silver buttons shine with a Letraset Metallic Marker.  I also added Glossy Accents to her glasses.

Here is a close-up of Jasmine:



The sentiment is from the Have Yourself A set from Create With TLC.  You can find it in Paulette's store here.  I made it into a tag and tied it with some Baker's Twine.  A bit of stitched navy ribbon finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by again.  I appreciate your visits so much!  Hope to see you again soon!

  21. Hello Carla, well as good as this card looks on our blog, I would bet that it is even better in 'real life', it's such a shame that the camera doesn't pick up stuff like glossy accents and your use of the silver pen very well! I love the way you have coloured Jasmine, she is one of my favourite Kenny K images so Good Luck in this weeks challenge and I hope that we will see you again real soon for another challenge on our blog,
    Take Care

  22. You make the most out of your projects,MF you should give classes on it.
    I've been catching up on your cards here and I continue be amazed by your unquestionable talent.
    Here in NE, we're enjoying some truly comfortable weather.....I'm sure the heat wave will catch up with us in a few days. But right now, it's a lovely 65 degrees after a nice soft summer rain.
    Sending big hugs hoping all is well with you and yours.
