Three Cheers for the Red, WHite & Blue

It's time to do some coloring! Squigglefly offers us this week's challenge:
Create a card using Red, White and Blue.
It can be 4th of July theme or not, as long as you use Red, White and Blue.

I chose another new release from artist Pammie Lehto called "4 Stars."  I colored her string of starts with Copics and although you can't see it in the photo, use Stickles to shine up the white stars.

My card is a Z-Fold, but unlike others I've made, I folded it on the horizontal, so my card is longer than it is tall.  I chose to use up more papers in my stash, and a few patriotic-looking serendipity squares on my card front.

I let Pammie's image decorate the inside of my card, although with a Z-fold, you see part of the inside whether it's flat or open.  That's what I like about this type of card!

A piece of adhesive-backed ribbon embellishes that back part, and hiding behind the card front is a toothpick American flag.  I haven't added the sentiment inside yet, because it's going to be a birthday card for my daughter.  yup, as Bruce Springsteen sang, she was "Born in the U.S.A." on the fourth of July.

I love my little Liberty girl, who has also graduated from high school this month.  Happy birthday, hon!!

Okay, crafters, time to get out your markers, pencils and inks and show your true colors with this week's Squigglefly Challenge.  Don't forget to use a Squigglefly image to be in the running for a free digi!!  And as always, have fun!!

Great card! I love the fireworks images and the stars are the best compliment to them - great idea to add shine and sparkle to them!
