Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!!! Hope you all have a great day today. 
I created this birthday card with a red, white and blue patriotic color scheme. I love this silhouette stamp. I colored in the flowers on her dress and the flowers on the patterned paper with a red Copic marker. I freehand the flower embellishment and added a rhinestone in the center then I finished the card with a white satin ribbon tied into a bow.


This is the patterned paper before I colored some of the flowers. I was able to color the flowers even though the patterned paper wasn't as thick as the cardstock. It held the ink pretty well.


I am linking this to the following challenges:
2 Sisters Challenge - red/white/blue
FOSTV - red/white/blue
Perfect Sentiments Challenge - anything goes with red/white/blue
