Feeling Patriotic (or...Challenge Bonanza!)

I was feeling patriotic today, and I wanted to meet some challenges on some blogs that I frequent, so this little 4th of July kit is what I came up with. The challenge over at Cupcake crafts was to use this sketch to make a card:





I also wanted to meet the challenge over at Just Magnolia , so I used this sweet little Tilda stamp, mounted on a free svg shape that I got from Susan Bluerobots' blog , which I cut out of a scrap of navy cardstock, which I mounted on the blackout version of the same cut from a scrap of DCWV white Glitter cardstock, (which was left over from the Spark Latch box below) and mounted that on a square cut out from The Patriotic Card Kit from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. Then I mounted it all on the 6x6 card that I cut from the cardsock leftover from the Patriotic Nut Cup. So, since I used all of those paper scraps AND digital images (The Patriotic Card Kit, and the 4th of July Bunting), I fulfilled the Digital Tuesday Challenge!
The card (front):
The card (inside):







The Spark Latch box:

I found the SCUT to cut this box at : http://www.scrappingtable.com/shapes.html under "boxes". I cut it from White glitter cardstock cut from DCWV's Glitter stack, and decorated it with the 4th of July bunting digistamp, which I hand colored using my BIC markers, Copic markers, White Uniball Signo pen, and Diamond Glitter Stickles on the star. I added white eyelets to the ends of the bunting, and threaded a sheer red ribbon through, repeating all the way around the box.




The Patriotic Nut Cup, which I found by going to the site linked above and clicking on "cups": Thanks for looking! Now hurry on over to the other designer's blogs, because one of them has a free digistamp for you for one week only!














Happy hunting!
