Pork of July

(If you are looking for today's Repeat Impressions sketch challenge scroll down, or click here. )

 It isn't even July yet...and look at me, a Fourth of July card!  Woot! And two posts in one day...Double Woot!

This card represents one of the reasons I love Hambo Stamps!  Their sentiments just crack me up, and the one on this card is no different.

For this card, I used the Hambo image of "Uncle Ham" (3419) by stamping it with Marvy black dye ink onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored the image multimedia style with Copic markers and Caran d'Ache color pencils.  I used the out-of-the-box technique to let the flag hang out from the image panel.  Polar White Flower Soft was used on Uncle Ham's beard, and some Crystal Stickles add some sparkles to the sparkler. The image was framed with black cardstock.

I used my Cricut George and Basic Shapes cartridge to cut the stars from black and white cardstock.  I adhered small bows of Maraschino Baker's Twine to these stars.

Patterned paper is from Bo Bunny and is framed with black cardstock. Small ric rac from white cardstock was cut with a Nestabilities die.  The layout is inspired by today's Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast, SC#391.

The Hambo sentiment "Pork of July" (3416) was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black Pigment ink.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.  So hard to believe the Fourth of July is next week.  Yikes!  What has happened to my summer?  Wishing all of my fellow American readers a happy holiday.
