I combined several challenges for this card. The layout is based on the Mojo Monday sketch for this week, number 198.
I took my color inspiration and general theme of the card from this week's The Shabby Tea Room Challenge of red, white, and blue.
Finally, at Papertake Weekly Challenge, this week, anything goes!
Here's my 4th of July influenced card. I know that Tilda is from Sweden, but I think she looks pretty cute perched on her glittery cupcake in her red, white, and blue outfit.
I took a couple of closeups to show some of the details a bit more clearly. I made this flag rosette embellishment using a MFT scoring die, a star punched using a Creative Memories large star punch and heavily coated in crystal stickles glitter, some aluminum foil that I cut into thin strips, and a flag button from my stash.
ETA: Thank you so much to TSTR for selecting my card as one of the honorable mentions for this challenge! It really means a lot to have my card selected. Thank you!!
