Bug A Boo Stamps Dottie

We have a new challenge starting today at Bug A Boo Stamps Catch The Bug, we are being challenged to make a project using red, white & blue and add ribbon too.

If you know me by now, you know I LIKE red, white & blue and think kraft cardstock goes well with it too!  

It's getting toward the end of June and being in Arizona our temperatures are steadily in the 110 - 115 degree range and will be for awhile now so I thought Dottie in her beach attire would be very appropriate for this challenge.  Don't you wish you looked like Dottie in a bikini?  I look more like Jodie's character Fanny...  enough about that!

I colored this cute image with Copic markers R27, R24, R22, R20, B95, B93, B91, YR24, YR21, Y21, YR00, E000, E00 and kept my layout simple.  The patterned papers are from the Doodle Pantry Stars & Stripes digital collection.  The cardstock used is Kraft, Neenah Navy Linen & Neenah Solar White.  My sentiment is a stamp by Inspired Stamps and added a little red, white & blue ribbon tails to my Spellbinders long narrow oval.  Oh, I also used Enamel Accents on Dottie's earrings.  
I hope you'll go over to the Catch The Bug blog and see all the fun creations from our design team and play along in our challenge too!
