This week has a lot of celebrating!! July 1 was Canada Day, and July 4 will be Independence Day for the US!
SO - this High Hopes stamp made me think of the summer celebrations. My family has always had a picnic on July 4 - Hmmm...

The stamp, Grillin' Joseph, and the saying Fire Up The Grill go together so well. I used Copic colors Booo, B95, C1, E00, E27, E35, R29, and Y35 to color the image. The verse was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. After the image was colored, I went around the edges with Copic 100 to outline the image, and used a slim line marker to outline the letters on the hat, so it would look like a youngster had done it to his hat. I used Designer Papers with many stars and patriotic imaging on it to decorate the card. Ribbon used on the front is decorated with stitching and reflective dots.

Inside of the card, I covered it with patriotic papers, the paper on the top has glitter as well as stars and stripes on it. On the lower page, three different papers are used underneath the white section in the middle. Papers used have red, white, and blue coloring, as well as many stars.

Have Fun!!
