Happy Birthday America!

Fourth of July weekend is upon us here in the United States, and our Blogger's Challenge for today is a patriotic theme. I started off with my little Biker Bee from Stampendous. He's colored up with Copic Markers (B00, B12, B14, C3, R20, R27, R29, Y21, and the Colorless Blender) and I added a little touch of Star Dust Stickles for some sparkle. I used my Nesties for the square and the scallop square. The gingham papers are from A Muse and they are accented with Stampin' Up's Real Red. The happy birthday sentiment is from the My Favorite Things set Little Loveosaurus. I finished this one off with some American Crafts buttons and a strip of ribbon from my stash. I'm off to check out what the other Ladies from the Blogger's Challenge group have come up with. You can find the links to their blogs here. Have a beautiful day and thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles! :D
