Happy 4th of July

I had another opportunity to use my Vintage Picnic set. This time I filled the picnic basket with 4th of July goodies. This set is so fun to play with! I stamped the basket on Kraft card stock, colored it with Copics and glitter pens, then I cut it out. I stamped the basket and the goodies on Rustic Cream card stock. I colored the goodies with Copics and glitter pens and adhered the Kraft basket to it. I did the same thing to the flag. I wanted my white stripes to be white, not cream, so I stamped it on white, colored it, cut it out and adhered it to the focal image.

Supplies-cardstock:Kraft, Pure Poppy, Rustic Cream, White(PTI). Navy(Prism). papers-White Crackle(Karen Foster).Flags(unknown-sorry). stamps:Vintage Picnic, Vintage Picnic Sentiments(PTI). ink:Memento Tuxedo Black(Tsukineko). Pure Poppy(PTI). other: ribbon from my stash. Copic Markers, Spica AtYou glitter pens. Scor-Pal.
I wish each of you a very happy and safe 4th of July. Have a wonderful weekend!
Happy Hat

Enjoy your weekend, my friend! I hope it feels like summer there for you. We have threats of storms tomorrow night, so who knows if we'll see a light show.

Your card is fantastic! Love how you filled the basket (those details again, that you have mastered).
