Happy Birthday America

  How blessed we are as a nation to be free in so many ways! While each day we seem to take these freedoms for granted, I hope that during this fourth of July celebration you will be able to take time to be thankful for your many blessings. 

So today I'm celebrating with this Stampendous, House Mouse image called Sparkler Art. 


Little Mudpie is busy with both hands wishing America a Happy Birthday!

I've colored the mouse and grass with Copic markers and left the sparkler art uncolored while I ran it through the die machine.  I used Gina Marie Designs Labels Six for the decorative edge.  

After attaching the multi polka-dotted background to a standard A2 white card base, I added the colored image.  Then I traced over the sparkle art using Nuvo Glitter Pens from Scrapsalot, LLC.  For the final touch I added a glittered enamel dot in the center of each design. 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
