Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Freedom

Hi Everyone,
My card today was made in support of the Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenge for which DRS Designs is the sponsor this week.  Play along with your "Patriotic" card and you will have the chance at winning a $10.00 voucher to the store.

On this card I used the Freedom Cannon for my focal image, stamping it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloring it with Copic markers and die cutting it out with a Spellbinders square die.  It was layered on a background made by covering some sticker paper with Liberty glitter (both from Sparkle N Sprinkle) and adding a strip of card stock that was dry embossed with stars.  Also, the side of my white card stock layered was punched with a star border punch. 

I finished the card with some twine and a glittery star button.  Since the sentiment was built into the image, I chose not to add anything further, but did embellish the firework with a bit of Stickles.

Thanks for stopping by and good luck playing along in the challenge!
