4th of July FUN!



As most of the US folks know, the 4th of July is coming up!  I had to use this sweetie ASAP (she's def my new fave) so I altered a Crystal Light drink container with patriotic paper and am going to put sparklers in it for the kids :0)


I used the "outside the frame" Nestabilities technique for this one, kind of challenging but I love the results.
Side:


Back:


I added a bunch of bling to this so I could enter it into the Anya Ink "add some bling" challenge.  She's got pearl earrings, some red stars on her boots, blue and clear stars scattered around and some red jewels in the center of the flowers. 

Ingredients:
TGF Stamp - Cheeky Mate
CC's Design Stamps - Honey Sailor
Copics
Ribbon
Stickles
Dome shaped jewels
Flat back pearls
Star jewels
