Happy 4th of July - MFTWSC79

Happy 4th of July to my American friends!  I'm right on schedule with this week's MFTWSC79 and used the perfect image for today, the a-la-mode Firecracker!  I did flip the sketch a bit though.

I stamp her in Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured her with copics.  Like the Pure Innocence girls, the a-la-modes are great for paper piecing and I made her a cute little sundress.  The paper is October Afternoon Boarding Pass with some SU Real Red and Night of Navy.  I used part of a sentiment from PI Lady Liberty stamping it on the First Place Award Ribbon die-namic.  The Stacking Stars die-namic made two perfect stars, one for the top sentiment banner  and I tried the faux epoxy sticker technique - I covered the star with stickles and after it dried I added crystal effects.  I added a bit of red ribbon and bow, placing the largest Stacking Star behind it.  The inside has a strip of the pattern paper using the Chevron stripes die-namic.

Last night was the first of two nights of fireworks for me and I LOVE fireworks!  Here's a little photo Karen took of me eagerly awaiting the fireworks to start and one of the big ones!

So, Happy 4th of July and Happy 1st to me - I edited this card and added my watermark all by myself after a wonderful lesson from Karen - thanks Karen!
