Bee Crafty #33 - 3D Challenge

Good Morning!  Happy Weekend!  I am thrilled to announce that I've been invited to be a part of the Bee Crafty Design team.  This (fortnight's) challenge is 3D.  So thinks lots of layers!!



Since tomorrow is the US Independence Day holiday, I thought it fitting to create a card to celebrate!  Tomorrow we're going to watch the fireworks over Lake Monroe.  I'm sure it's going to be beautiful!!

I created this card for a couple of other challenges, too.  Over at Raise the Bar, Joni's challenge is to create a card using your flag colors.  I also incorporated Crafts4Eternity challenge which is their sketch, add stripes and bunting.  I created my own bunting with scraps of the decorative paper I used.



This photo shows the dimension I added.




And another photo so you can see the bunting I created.

Supplies:
Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Night of Navy
Paper:  Digital paper designed by T Hernandez (A Cherry on Top)
Copics:  B95, B97, E00, E02, E33, E37, R27, R29, Y06
Tools:  CM Circle cutter, pop dots, Diamond Glaze, star punch

I can't wait to see what you do with this challenge, so head on over to Bee Crafty blog for more inspiration and to learn how to participate.
