Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Patriotic

I had such a good time with this challenge! Patriotic! What a fun challenge! The Design Team is using products by My Favorite Things. I am using this ADORABLE image called Meet Emma and Wyatt (supplies listed at the end of the post).  I paired the adorable little girl and boy with Lawn Fawn Fireworks and of course, a yummy Simon Says Stamp cupcake!

I colored the images with Inktense pencils! Love those babies!


I added some Picket Fence stickles to the cupcake and it looks good enough to eat!!!!

The wonderfully amazing and sweet Heidi is offering up a $50 gift certificate to the Simon Says Stamp online store!!!!!! HELLO!!!!!! That’s awesome!!!

Be sure to head on over the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog and take a look at the rest of the design team inspiration and play along with us!!! Be prepared to have your socks blown off because they are all amazing! I am so lucky to be a part of this team!
