Patriotic with the Pixie Cottage


Welcome to today's Once Upon a Wednesday challenge with the Pixie Cottage. This week our theme is Patriotic. This can be anything that reminds you of your country. Flags, celebrations, colors...be creative! We also have a wonderful sketch for you from our very own Pam. You can choose to do our them or the sketch or both! As always, Michelle has a terrific prize for our winner so I hope to see you this week!
Here is this weeks sketch:
I flipped the sketch for my card this week and made an American flag for my background. My image background was sponged with distress inks and then accented with stickles for the stars. My firework was embossed with a red pearl powder.
My image this week is one of the mini Hannah on the Bench stamps. I thought this would be perfect for watching fireworks. I used a slim ribbon, Jupiter Mica/Metallic paper, Neenah solar white and HQ water color papers from The Paper Temptress.
