Happy 4th of July

Happy Fourth of July, everyone!

Today's Limited Supplies Challenge centers around the number four. We were to make a card using:

- Four colors but mostly RED, WHITE and BLUE

- Only 4 embellishments or specialty tools

- Only 4 layers (Yikes!!)

My card is red, white, blue, and black. My four embellishments are gingham ribbon, plain circle nestie, scallop circle nestie, and dimensionals (behind both the white circle as well as the blue scalllop circle). The blue star in the lower left corner was stamped and then hand-cut...so that doesn't count as an embellishment. I stamped some blue stars on the inside of the card, down in the lower left corner.

The mouse image is from a Christmas set, but with the stars I thought it could also be used as a birthday image...especially made for a friend of mine who also shares a July birthday. Speaking of that??...are any of you celebrating a birthday this month??

Recipe ~
Stamps: Penny Black Christmas Critters, Verve Starlight Starbright, Verve Seeing Stars
Paper: Papertrey White, Real Red Designer Prints, Textured Brilliant Blue
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, Basic Black, Brilliant Blue, Real Red
Accessories: Blue Gingham Ribbon, Circle Nestie, Scallop Circle Nestie, Dimensionals
Technique: Watercoloring with inkpads
Card Size: 4.25" x 4.25"

I hope you have a very fun and safe holiday!!

Hugs,
