Fireworks Miss Bitty

Hi all, I can't believe that I haven't posted in so long. Seems that I have been busy and have been making projects that I will post all this week. I have had to rearrange and reorganize my craft room with new shelves and tables because I have a new toy - a Cricut Expression and have been playing with it!  It is so much more easy to put things where they belong now since they actually have a place to go!

Today's card is made with some of that playing around.  I used Little Miss Bitty from Fred She Said and colored her with my Prismacolors and OMS in red, white and blue.  She is glittered up and has sparklers attached to her antennae.  I wanted there to be fireworks, or something that looked like them, so I used the Storybook Cricut cartridge and found the dandelion frame that kinda looked like it.  I then glittered the ends and layered another glittered frame on it for a firework explosion look.  Little Miss Bitty is popped up on top of these layers with her "OH" expression.  The USA panel and letters were cut out from the same cartridge.  I used a very sparkly silver holo paper for the base mat of the card for some real bling!

The inside of the card is decorated with the same frame and also two of the dandelion flowers cut out of the holo paper.  This paper can be peeled off the white backing and can be used as a sticker which is what I did for the "fireworks" on the inside. Enjoy your 4th of July and remember all of those who are keeping us safe and free!  I'll be back tomorrow with a quilling project and be sure to check back all this week for more cards and quilling!

Thanks for all your sweet comments, I appreciate each and every one!
