God Bless America!!

Hello Stampers and Friends - I am glad you stopped by!!  The past couple of months have been challenging, with home improvements and added work responsibilities - seems I'm left with little time to stamp.  Thankfully I have managed to find some here and there.  Today's card is for this weeks ODBD SLC #160 - in celebration of Red, White and Blue.  My card is a simple one.

God Bless America!!!!!!!

Simple - yet so fun to color!!  I love this stamp because there's so much movement in it.  I can almost hear the sound of the wind!!  I used Copic markers and Atyou Spica Glitter Pens.  The glitter pends add so much depth in the color, and although you cannot see it at all in the photo, there is some subtle sparkle in the folds and creases.  I also used white Gel Pen to make the stars pop.

This is my last card as a Challenge Team member for ODBD - in July I'm moving to the Alumni Team!!  I love that I'll still be designing for this amazing company.  Kelley, Rick and the team, along with the other designers, are a truly special group - and they've been a blessing to me in more ways than they can possibly know.  I'm looking forward to joining the Alumni, and will be designing for each month's New Release Hops - so hopefully I'll see you all there :)!!

I can hardly wait to see the before and after photos of your home improvements, Audrey. Now, on to your AMAZING card! WOW! Love the richness of the flag with the vibrant colors and touch of shading with the brown tone. The delicate frame is beautiful - our liberty really is fragile, but most do not quite comprehend that by taking it for granted. Thank you for artistically arranging both the strength and vulnerability together in one card. hugs, de
