Kenny K Red,White & Blue

Hello Everyone! Yesterday ended up being a nice birthday though it started a bit rough when my automatic car payment company had a computer error and ended up deducting my payment 3...yes I said three times! Fortunately all the money is back today and they will pay any bank fees I have if going in the I am having a much better morning.

Decided to color up this gorgeous image from Kenny K and I am pretty happy with how it all came together.  A bit bummed that I did not make the team but I know I am still a work in progress and seeing what those artists can do I will have more practice to get there.  I used two cartridges, Stand and Salute for the dog tag/sentiment-"My Hero" but I think my paper may have been too shiny so it is a bit hard to read.  The star is cut from and Accent Essentials. 

I will be entering this one in:

Kenny K-Jazz it Up
Inky Impressions-Red, White & Blue
Divas by Design-use diecuts
Top Tip Tuesday-Independence day or Stars & Stripes
Great Impressions-Die Cuts/Punches

  6. Olivia, that's really rough! I would've been devastated! You've got the right idea about design teams too as you should never stop trying because they all need people that never give up! Great coloring and design, your star is wonderful and so is your sentiment! Thanks so much for joining us at Top Tip Tuesday and best of luck to you!

  9. Glad your payments were sorted!!!!!!!

    Gorgeous card - love the papers! Here's a Top Tip for you ...try edging your sentiment with a marker pen (on the VERY edge of the cut) it may help your words stand out a little more - although I think it looks fab anyway, that paper is awesome!
