{SENDING SUNSHINE} on a Happy July 4th!

I sat at my craft desk early this morning, determined to create something new.  The fact that it's the fourth of July holiday made my subject matter fall right into place!

I looked at all of the fun challenges I wanted to play along with and incorporated everything into one lacy, floral, festive RED WHITE and BLUE card to share with you today.  :)

I wanted to do something I haven't done in a while, so I grabbed my white embossing powder, this cute Fleur Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm, and got started.

I heat-embossed the image and then painted it with Distress Ink markers, water, and a paintbrush.  I love this look!  You'll probably see it more often from me...it's just so soft and pretty, no?

I followed a sketch and layered up a bunch of papers and cardstock from Papertrey Ink.  I added a handful of gorgeous flowers and leaves from I Am Roses... some of which I ordered just for this holiday, so I'm glad I remembered to use them! That blue rose... it's perfect.  :)
They are as follows:  R21-426,  R77-310,  S10-78,  ZQL20-426

I'm linking this girl up to the following challenges:

{I AM ROSES} - June IAR Challenge
{SIMON SAYS STAMP} - Going Dotty
{THE GREETING FARM} - July: Red,White,Blue
{PAPERTAKE WEEKLY} - Take Your Pick (sketch)

Thank you for visiting!
