Let Freedom Roam!

We are so excited to have Gloria with us again!

It was perfect timing to round out our Nations Celebrated challenge (remember to pop over and enter your creations)

I love the mix of powders, stamps, inks and dimensionals. So much eye candy to behold

I am so excited to be a guest at Emerald Creek. I don't often have a chance to play with my messy stuff, so this was time to try out some techniques from my mixed media files! I decided to create a 4th of July card for the Nations Celebrated Dare! For me, summer does not really begin until we have our 4th of July barbecue! I created a vintage, mixed media card, which is a whopping 6 1/2" x 6 1/2". I created my own background paper with inks, stamps, stencils, embossing powder, paint, and more! Thanks, Kim and Team for having me as a guest!
