4th of July or Celebration Somethings


Good Morning and welcome. It is Friday and that means that the weekend is finally here and it is time for another Stamp Something challenge.
Our theme this week is

4th of July or Celebration Somethings 

For my card today I have used Dangling Sea Tilda which you can find from our Sponsor Simon Says Stamp.


This is actually the first time that this image has made it onto a card even though I have had it for a year as I have found her to be a challenge to colour. I have finally achieved results that I am happy with. In keeping with the theme, I have then added a few stars to the background.

The layout was relatively simple and I was able to put this card together using scraps that were left from other projects. I have embellished the card with a cluster of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Lastly I have added the one element that I am not to happy with, a sentiment in the bottom corner. I wish that I had added the sentiment on a tag or something that could be embellished as it does not really stand out enough. If anyone has any suggestions as to how I can cover this up for another go, please share.

I hope that you have been inspired to join us this week. Be sure to pop by the Stamp Something Blog as the rest of the DT have created some gorgeous creations to share with you.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
