Berry Betsy Birthday - PSC 39

Hello Friends, and Happy 4th of July!!!!!   I hope you are all enjoying a day off from work and spending time with family and/or friends, or maybe just enjoying a quiet day at home.  Wednesday also means it's time for another Perfect Sentiment challenge.  You're going to like this one!  In honor of Independence Day, it's ANYTHING GOES!  You can also choose what type of project you want to make - it does not have to be a card as long as you have a sentiment on the front.  But there is a twist.  Besides having a sentiment on the front of your card, you must use the colors - red, white & blue!  It doesn't have to be patriotic, but you need to use those colors.

Our sponsor this week is Crafty Sentiments Designs.  You can shop at their store HERE.


 That's not such a good picture, but the best I can do.  The prize this week to one lucky person is 3 digital stamps from the CSD store.  Lots of cute things over there.

Now, on to my card.

 I'm sorry it's not such a great photo, but I think the blue glitter paper kind of washed out the image photo.  My youngest daughter celebrated her "over 29" birthday on Sunday, July 1, and I made this card for her, so it's already been given away.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Berry Betsy - Mayzy Arts
  • Sentiment - Computer generated printed off my computer on SU Whisper White and cut with the large SU Oval Punch and matted on SU Night of Navy, punched with the SU Scallop Oval Punch.
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Gina K 120# white; SU Night of Navy; SU Real Red
  • Paper - Red Star;  Glitter from Recollections
  • Trim - Art Minds - Glitter Lines - Royal
  • Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Leaves - Martha Stewart Fir Branch punch
  • Copics - C0; E00, E11, E04; E23, E25; G12; B21, B34, B41, B45; R05, R17, R27; Y11, Y15, Y17; White Gel Pen
Now check out what the rest of the Design Team has come up with to inspire you this week over at the Perfect Sentiment Challenge.  You might win those 3 digi images or be picked as one of the Perfect 3.
