Red, White and Blue

The 4th of July is such an amazing day for our county and I am always so happy to see it celebrated so brightly and loudly with fireworks.  So when it came time to make my card for the Red, White and Blue challenge at Fun at Fairy Knoll this week, fireworks immediately came to mind. The fireworks themselves are Stickles. The blue night sky is a piece of velvety paper from my stash ~ probably old SEI.  The white paper is glittery Doodlebug and the red is most likely Stampin' Up.  The dress on the image was fun to color ~ I just let my mind go a little crazy! :)
 Fairy Knoll is looking for some additional design team members.  If you are interested please email me at fairyknoll(at)rocketmail(dot)com with your blog address.  Thanks!
Turns out the Copic class I took last night was a bit of a bust... very beginner info, but that's okay.  Maybe I'll find another one that's not too far away to attend ~ my fingers are crossed. :)

I wanted to leave you with a freebie today ~ her name is Harmony. Sometimes she holds a little birdie in her hand, but not today.  Harmony was drawn over a year ago and has lived quietly in my computer files. Please feel free to take her and use her, but please leave me a comment later on if you post a creation on your blog featuring her.  I would love to see it. 

Have a wonderful holiday weekend.
Smiles ~ Brandi
