Red, White and Blue Challenge!

Hi everyone! 
Here's my card for the red, white and blue Challenge over at Art Impressions. This is the second week of the Challenge. When I heard about this Challenge I immediately thought of the Girlfriends 2015 Quilt set. I could just see the quilt done in those colors!

I chose papers from Tailored Expressions called Summer Nights. This collection is all in red, white and blue...very patriotic! I layered the patterned papers with red and blue, added a white ribbon with a heart slider for fun! The Quilt set comes with 3 sentiments and I used one on the front of the card and one inside.

 I used the Perfect Layers Mini from Perfect Paper Crafts to layer my sentiment with red and blue. I always like to use up my scraps from when I am cutting my pattern paper, so I die cut little flags and added them to the inside.

All my layers are glued onto a pre-made 5.5" square card. I used foam squares to pop up the image and sentiment to add dimension to my card.

Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, R20, R24

I always like to use a black Gel pen on the girls eyes and also glossy accents on the glasses. I also used clear Wink of Stella on the hearts, quilt border and earrings. Hope this card helps inspire you to make a Red, White & blue project to enter in our new Challenge!
Happy Stamping!
