Red White and Blue at Delightful

Good morning bloggers and Happy Thursday! As it is Thursday this sees the start of a brand new challenge over at Delightful Challenges and the theme this week is:

RED  WHITE  AND BLUE!!

This is just so topical at the moment with us in the UK being only hours away from the Diamond Jubilee weekend and the 4th of July is looming on the horizon for our US friends (not to mention Bastille Day for our French cousins I could go on but I have run out of ideas lol)!!  Wendy has some gorgeous red white and blue digital papers over at Digital Delights and you can see them here. So here is my card for today's challenge:


Isn't she just adorable?  She is Riveting Rosie and I have coloured her with my Copics and Prismas.  Wendy's images are a joy to colour they just colour so well however if you don't like colouring or you are in a rush you always have the option to get the image pre-coloured!  Here is the link to Rosie and at the moment of writing this she is 50% off.  I have used a combination of Wendy's Digital Papers on my card. The ones with stars on are from Patriotic Digital Pack available here and the red white and blue stripe and dotted ones are from the Sail Away Pack available here.  I have paper pieced the scarf on Rosie's head. For the sentiment I have used Wendy's Ticket sentiment and just coloured the edge in with a Prisma.  I have cut and matted Rosie with a circle and  Star Circle Nestabilities. I then punched some little yellow stars out using the Star Circle Nestability and glued them on some card candi I had coloured to match.  I then put Glossy Accents on the card candi but I took the picture before it had dried so it looks a bit cloudy but IRL it is nice and shiny!  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments - Any Sentiment
Moving Along With the Times - Red White and Blue
My Mum's Craft Shop - Red White and Blue
Celebrate the Occasion - Anything Goes
Celebrate Craft - Red White and Blue
Love to Create - Add a Sentiment
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Our sponsor this week is:


Joanna has kindly donated a £10 gift voucher for her store to the lucky winner.

If you want some more inspiration please go over to Delightful Challenges and see what the other members of the talented DT have designed - its worth the trip!

Well that is it for me for today.  It is 0448 as I am writing this, its the last time I have two coffees at night!!  See you tomorrow, take care xx

Your Rosie stamp is wonderful and you did a great job of colouring her! The paper piecing adds a real nice touch as does the great digital paper in the background!

Hi Susan, sweet image and fab colouring, so much detail.
Glad I'm not the only one that has to come back to my post to add challenges though in my case it's cos I'm so slow at posting it takes me all night to get organissed.
Hope you manage not to fall asleep during the day when lack of sleep catches up with you hun.
