EB June/July Project - It's A Sketch

Since I'm always late getting my card submitted for this monthly challenge I thought I would really be early so I don't miss it again.  I have a couple of other cards ready to post but can't post them yet so I'm going ahead and sharing this one with you.  I just love these little fairies by Elizabeth Bell and they are available at Bells'n WhistlesThis little one here is titled "Fairy Wishes".  Isn't she just the cutest! 

The DP is from my stash and I have no idea of the name of it.  The lace and flower are from WOC. The punches used were Fiskars heart border and MS branch.  Colored with Copics, stickles and gems from stash were added.  The sentiment is from Do It With Digi's.  Also used were liquid pearls on the mushroom and on the heart border. I really liked the pearlized shine it gave to the border.

We went to a fireworks display in the country with my daughter, SIL Jim, and son John.  It was so spectacular and as big as any city display I've ever seen.  It's an every year event hosted by the owner of one of the major construction suppliers for his customers, friends, and family and always held July 3rd.  We had such a great time you can bet we won't miss another one.  Everything is so beautiful in the country and the fireworks were held behind their large pond which reflected the lights on the water.  Totally awesome!

Here's wishing you all a safe and happy July 4th, Independence Day in the USA and for those elsewhere a wonderful weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I sure hope you have the time to leave me a comment so I don't miss hopping by to see what's new with you.
