Oh Beautiful for Spacious Skies

Speedy's Challenge #62 Patriotic

Please be safe this holiday week and have fun in all you do.  We are thankful for the freedoms we have in our country.  What a privilege.
7-2 Patriotic

   Speedy the Cat’s friends has a fun Patriotic Challenge going on this week.  Come and join us.  You could win a free stamp set and they stamp SO nicely. Here’s a sneak peek of one of the really fun sets being released this month.  The music notes are from the “Silent Night” stamp  in the Musical Christmas set .  It’s fun to combine sets together.
I’m just getting started with copic coloring and I do love how they shade so nicely.  I used flower soft on the vine to give it a fun look and kind of incorporate that fun little birds ruffly new feathers.  The Martha Stewart punch created the fence edge, which I thought suited the bird house.
I hand lettered the sentiment.  Everything on the card can be purchased from Mark’s Finest Papers except the ribbon which came from Michaels;  oops, and the eyelets were from my stash too.  (we do have eyelets at MFP) just sayin’
Thanks for stopping by. I do appreciate each and every comment and thank you for leaving them. Smile
