Celebrate - Design Team post

Hello People! Meet Betty! She is a digital stamp by Owl Whimsy. She will be available for purchase on Monday, June 8 and one lucky person from THIS WEEK'S challenge will win the entire set of Betty images. I've seen them all and they are cute!
If you haven't entered this week's challenge, there is still time. Just use any Suzie Q image and have her posted to the Owl Whimsy blog by Sunday (tomorrow!) night. A new challenge will begin on Monday...using none other than Betty!!!
The red, white & blue colors on this card were chosen as our Home Page Card Contest for Stamplicious, so I chose to go with a Patriotic theme.
The card sketch originated from So Sketchy, but I altered it to suit my needs. :O)
Card details:
Betty - Owl Whimsy
Red Canvas Texture cardstock - Cardstock Online
Patriotic Paper - The Paper Studio
Gems - Decorative Accents (Michaels)
Ribbon - 3/8" satin ribbon (Michaels)
Eyelets and button - from my stash
Sentiment - Stampology, colored with E29 Copic
Copics - E50, Y21, B29, B24, B32, BG10 and R20
Since I received several emails and comments on the idea of coloring and repurposing items for scrapbooking, I thought I'd share a little something with you from this project:
I'm sure you've experienced the irritation that comes with needing a certain color of ribbon only to find you have every shade except the one you need! That was me tonight! Out of all the rolls of ribbon I have, I didn't have "the" color of ribbon I needed for my card. Soooo, I colored them with my Copics...and it worked. Woohoo!! You can't even tell they weren't that color to begin with. ha! Now Michaels is going to have to keep their white ribbon stocked up because I will definitely be doing this again!!! So much easier than trying to find the exact match to my project.

Thank you so much for stopping by! :o)
Pin It!
