Crafting for all Seasons Challenge #30 Patriotic/Military/Fireworks

Time for a new challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is Patriotic/Military/Fireworks,we're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by Di's Digi Doodles, Sweet n Sassy and Saturated Canary. I've used an image supplied by Saturated Canary.


I've gone Patriotic with my card and used red, white and blue. This is the first time I've used a Saturated Canary image and think I need a little more practise to make perfect! Image is coloured with promarkers and die cut with an oval nestie before being layered onto a scalloped and a larger oval nestie. Paper and buttons are from Papermania. Ribbon and sentiment from my stash.




Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the girls inspiration, you won't be disappointed.
