Happy 4th July!...

... to all our friends over the pond. xx

This week, over at Sketch Saturday, is DT week, and this weeks sketch has been designed by my lovely friend Gill, with the added option of using an american theme.

And what a fabby sketch it is! Thank you Gill, it was a pleasure to work with :)

Here is my card...

The Hanglar image was given to me by Gill, so seemed appropriate to use it, I coloured her in patriotic red, white and blue, and continued with this colour theme by making the background papers for this card on Paintshop Pro.
The Star Spangled Banner sheet music was found via good ole Google ;)
The sentiment is by Stampin Up, from their pocket silhouettes set.
I added the red retro flowers, doodling, and sparkly stars to complete the card.

Hope you all have a great weekend! xx
