America the Beautiful

Hello friends! Happy Monday to you all! Since Independence Day is just around the corner I want to show you a card I made this weekend, just for fun! Love the "Patriotic Pride" set from Crafter's Companion. I think this set is perfect for 4th of July, troops or any patriotic festivity.

For this card I stamped the flag and sentiment in blue and red, just keeping it simple to showcase the national colors. I added red and blue cardstock behind the sentiment as well as stitches. The final touches were red and blue rhinestones.
Super easy!

Yesterday, I crafted for awhile, I colored a lot of images for new releases, promise to share them with you as soon as I can, one of the images I colored just for fun was this beautiful butterfly from Crafter's Companion, I have to say I have another idea in mind for this project, but sometimes your ideas don't turn the way you want them, but I like how this turn out.
