FCCB #279 Patriotism!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

The prize is 7 digital stamps!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

For my project I made a card to celebrate Canada Day! I used my Cricut Explore and the write feature to draw out the fireworks from the Stand and Salute Cricut cartridge with the Silver Cricut pen. I used the gold Wink of Stella pen to colour in the fireworks for some extra sparkle.

This cute elephant image is from Bugaboo Stamps - Edward Canada. I printed him on white cardstock and coloured him in with Prismacolor and Hobby Colour markers, which are alcohol based and also added some Wink of Stella pens in silver and gold. These pretty sequins are from one of the 28 Lilac Lane collections!

The Oh Canada was cut from the Summer Celebrations cartridge and the Polaroid from the Brooklyn Iron On cartridge. I love how it is just the Polaroid outline and shows the fireworks from behind!

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you enjoy a wonderful week and are getting some special plans together for Canada Day or Independence Day. Be sure to head over to the Fantabulous Cricut Blog to see what all the other Design Team members have come up with and enter your own Patriotic project for a chance to win!
