On to my creation! Every year at this time, I *have* to reach for Flourishes' Patriotism on Parade set -- I just love the darling kid images in this set and love the homespun charm this set has. So, my card is pretty predictable!

I used some fun patterned paper that I had in my stash, added a punched border, some gingham ribbon, a matching button and then matted up my stamped image that I had stamped on Flourishes Classic White and colored with Copic Markers. I only needed a few markers because the colored portions of this image are so small -- no real need to layer color! I used R27, R29, B41, B000, B0000, and then some of the Flesh Tones to color skin and hair. The shading on the bottom was done with the Tonal Neutrals. And that, my friends, is it! Easy Peasy!

Here's a closeup of those cute little kiddos!
