America, The Beautiful!!, HM&F Ch#41

It's Monday & time for another House Mouse Challenge at HM&F! This week, its Challenge #41 already & Stacy's turn to call it. She chose for us to to create using the colors ***Red, White & Blue***. Now, ya' knew that I would be going for a Patriotic/America look right??? :) Anything American themed is what I really love and here is my FUN card;

This HM stamp is by Stampabilities, HMD, featuring Amanda, Monica & Mudpie called "Show Your Colors", # HMLR1006. The sentiment is actually a part of a larger stamp by Inkadinkado called "America, The Beautiful, # 93903-x. Would you believe that I actually used COPICS?? yeap, I did. Im starting to play with them and trying to figure them out. I wanted to try coloring with them out on this week's card. How did I do?? The BG Paper is Vellum & Bazzill textured CS. Silver Star Brads corner this card and Rhinestones were stacked onto those Stars for added interest. The Rhinestones Patriotic frame was made using Rhinestones stickers from Michaels.

Come and join us at: http://housemouse-challenge.blogspot.com/

Thanks for looking & Happy creating! America
