PAPER DOLLS DRESS UP SERIES---episode 11

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY TO ALL!!!

and WELCOME again to our PDDU series. we are already on episode 11, two more and we are done with it.

we decided to use blue, red and white in honor of today's holiday. i bet you will find lots of this around our blogs. :P

to celebrate it, i made a card
 (what i believe i do best :P) 

A Living Legacy
2.75 inches wide by 5 inches tall
i think the card's name is so very appropriate. i found it on my stash of g-studios clear stamps. 

i was assigned page #73 for this project and i found a mrs. claus, a gingerbread man, a reindeer, a christmas tree, mrs. claus outfit and its accesories. well, what was i going to do with christmas in july? hehe! and then for the 4th of july?

well, i chose mrs. claus headwear, rotfl.
yeap! i took that "bun" of hers and welded it using my gypsy (if you do not have a gypsy you can use the cricut craft room) and transformed it onto a flower (which looks to me like a poinsettia, lol) and used it for my 4th of july theme card. 
you see? gotta color outside the lines sometimes, wink-wink.

the banner is handmade, the star was punched out and so was the flower center (i popped that one up with a foam dot adhesive). the ribbon? i used that ribbon? because it reminded me of fireworks. i believe is from ek adornments (i think is discontinued). 

i hope you have a great 4th of july and take another minute of silence to honor the meaning behind the holiday and those who fought for it and gifted it to all of us proud americans.

now onto my teammates fabulous projects:

  6. Your card today is lovely. I like the dark "primitive" red, blue, ivory for the occasion. I also like the fiber and agree that it gives that 4th July sparkle.
