Pixie DT - Sketch and Patriotic

Good Morning!

Today is Wednesday and that means a new Pixie Cottage challenge! This week we want to see you try the sketch and/or use the theme of Patriotic on your creation. Remember you can combine the sketch and theme or just use on or the other to play along. And while it's not necessary to use a Pixie Cottage stamp, if you have one, why not use it!

For my card I chose to use both the sketch and theme. I've used this sweet Sandra Hammer image called Hannah on Stepping Stones for my card.

I used some red, white, and blue colors for the patriotic colors of the USA along with some papers with stars on them. I went for a country/distressed look with these papers and distressed the edges with scissors. I've colored the image with Copics and then embellished with ribbon and lots of beautiful rose flowers.

This card also fits the challenges at:
My Time to Craft: Someone Special or Special Occasion
Sentimental Sundays: Summertime
Paper Play Time: Flag Day 
Crafty Ann's: Fly the Flag

Thanks for coming by today, hope you have a great day!

Happy Stamping,
