Stamp Fairy Indendence Bear


Happy Memorial Day!

My card today is my last as May's guest designer for Stamp Fairy.  It's been a super busy month with design team assignments and our kids are out of school now, I'm kind of looking forward to June and life slowing down just a little.  I'm not sure if that's even possible!

This card was so fun to make, the Stamp Fairy challenge blog has a sketch for us this week.  I don't usually make square cards because most of my cards go to Operation Write Home and they like A2 sized cards.  I think I'll use this one for an Any Hero card since it won't have to travel quite as far as the others. 


I colored my Independence Bear with Copic markers B97, B95, B93, B91, C6, C3, R29, R27, R24, E44, E43, E42, E41.  before I printed this image I added a sentiment directly below it because the sketch called for a long narrow panel.  This sentiment is digital Word Art from Elegant Word Art by Bethany.  I used my Spellbinders Circles dies for the circles under the stars.  The stars are from an old favorite punch of mine.  I can't believe I said "old favorite punch" - I'm NOT a fan of punches, I tend to break them.  The cardstock colors I used are Neenah Solar White & Red Linen, Carnival Navy & Kraft, the ribbon is last years from Michaels and I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
