A Patriotic Odd Girl

This card was inspired by a few different challenges.  The first is the new July sketch over at the {SOME ODD GIRL} blog.  I figured since Independence Day is coming up this week, it was only fitting to do something patriotic!


This gal is "Sweet Thinkin' Mae" from Some Odd Girl and she is a sweetie!  I colored her with Copics and paper-pieced her outfit with the coordinating DP used on the rest of the card.  I've had this DP for a few years now and I'm not sure who makes it.  The card stock is from Papertrey Ink and American Crafts.  The sentiment is stamped with red ink, but of course it wants to show up as pink instead.  :)

The stacked flower die and scallop border die are from My Favorite Things.  The red, white and blue bakers twine and button are from my stash.
