Let Freedom Ring!

What a fun kit this month from The Rubber Cafe!  Home of the Red, White and Blue is packed with fun papers and embellishments that compliment the stamp sets.

For this card I picked some of the fun paper included in the kit and layered it on the Navy cardstock.
I stamped the girl with Memento Ink and then colored her with Copic Markers.

You know I couldn't make a card without a bit of the You're So Fine Glitters....and so I framed both my image and my sentiment with the Patriotic Red glitter!

To frame the image I applied Scrap Happy Sheer Glue around the edge of a circle die cut just a bit larger than the image circle.  Glitter the edge and you have an easy instant frame for your image!  For the sentiment you could do the same.  I actually had a scrap of two sided tape that I used in place of the glue.

I wanted to use some of the fun glitter mesh included in the kit and I fan-folded it and attached it to my card with double sided tape.  Then I wanted my image to dance over the fabric fireworks, so I used an Action Wobbles to attach my image to the card over the mesh.

Tip:  want to change the color of the clear gems sent in the kit?  Color them with Copic markers like I did on her adorable pigtail holders!

I added a sequin over the sparkler that I touched with some of the Stardust Gel Pen.  Stars are attache to the card with pieces of Foam Squares to add a bit of dimension.
