USA Honey

Show your Country's colors...that is the optional challenge this week over at 613 Avenue Create. It's the end of the Olympics, so let's see how you represent your country. Our sponsor this week is Sassy Studio Designs.

I am using an image called USA Honey. I just love her stars and stripes bathing suit. The image was printed on white card stock and colored with Copic markers (hair - Y18, Y13, Y02; suit, lips and barrette - B69, R29; eyes - B02; skin E04). The title phrase USA is a cut file file purchased from Silhouette Online and cut with my Silhouette Cameo. I mounted the image on red card stock and then a blue card stock base. I added 3 colored gems for the fireworks and 1 small clear crystal for her diamond ring!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
