Red White and Blue

Love the color combination red, white and blue. Maybe because it is so patriotic or maybe it just is a great combination.  So for the 4th or  just because here is a card perfect for the season.
I was going to have Tilda sit on the lace jar but when I went in this morning after putting diamond glaze on it there was a big crack in it, but I think this worked better. I looked at it after it was put together and thought it needed something else around the edge. I thought of sewing but I had glued the layers down and thought that would gum up my sewing machine. The solution was to put little doodles around a la Danni. Tilda is colored with copics. I almost always make the wings blue but didn't want more blue with the dress so I colored them a pinkish color and really like that. I'll have to try it again.  The stars are from Target's see spot save section. You never know what you will find there. Check it out. Target should pay me extra for advertising. lol. There are red, crystal and gold stickles around the stars like fire works. The paper ribbon is done with a fiskar punch.  The celebrate is from an angel company stamp set. I don't know which one as it got separated from the set. Hope you enjoy her.

Copics used:
skin - E50, E00, E21, E11
checks - R20
wings - E93, R11, R00
hair - YR20, YR31, Y00
dress - B29, B24, B00
dress trim - R45, R35

This card was done for a couple of challenges:
Magnolia Birthday Bash - colors and layout
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - colors

Would love to hear your comments.

What a darling card to celebrate the 4th, you did a great job on coloring and all the accents. I love this little girl - don't have any "yet" but thinking about getting at least 1.
