♥ Happy 4th of July! ♥

I hope you all in the U.S. are having a Happy 4th of July weekend! BBQ's...swimming...family and friends! And of course, fireworks!!


This week I am your hostess over at The Shabby Tea Room and since it is Independence Day here in the U.S. I decided to make this week's challenge Red, White and Blue! It doesn't have to be 4th of July related, just any shades of red, white and blue on your card and/or project!


I made a card using a digi stamp from Robyn's Fetish called "Fruity Strawberries". I colored it in with some Copics and then added some glitter to it. I used a chipboard frame which I painted white, inked it with some brown and blue and then glittered it up! And I also used some paper by Magnolia and Cosmo Cricket as well as some seam binding ribbon, twine, button and Melissa Frances rub-on transfers. It all sits on a Kraft cardstock base which I distressed the edges with some white paint.


This week's prize sponsor is Robyn's Fetish. The winner of this week's challenge will win 5 digi images of your choice!

Hi Melissa! What a gorgeous card! I love the blend of patriotic colors with your fruity/flowery summertime theme. The distressing and painting are so pretty, and I love the glittered frame. Great coloring job on the strawberries, too. I really like the flower in blue. Just makes me smile.
