There's a new challenge over at Sassy Studio Designs.  They are having a release of different countries in honor of the Olympics.  The challenge is to create a card of your favorite country.  Since I can't imagine any other country better than the one I live in, I chose the USA.  I feel so blessed to be living in America.  Where else can you live that has all the freedom we have here?

This lovely girl is 4th of July Honey.  I colored her with Whisper Strokes and Stampin' Up markers and a white gel pen.  I added some Stickles by Ranger to give her some sparkle.  The background picture is something I pulled off the Internet.  The papers come from The Paper Co. and my Stash 'O Scraps.  The ribbons are Offray and Darice.  The sentiment comes from Create with TLC and I distressed it with Tim Holtz distressing ink.  Finally the pearls are from Queen & Co. 

I am entering into the following challenges:

Sassy Studio Designs -  Card based on your favorite country
Raise the Bar #108 - Red, white & blue
Allsort #164 - Distressing
Scrappy Frogs - Red, white & blue
Digi Doodle Shop #117 - Anything goes
Incy Wincy - Let's party
ATC's and Cards with Attitude #18 - Anything goes
Fat Pages and Cards with Attitude #18 - Anything goes
Joyful Stamper #68 - Anything goes

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you come back soon!
