Election Day

Hi Everyone, I hope everyone is having a great week so far.  I haven't posted since Sunday, and for some reason it just seems like ages ago!!

Anyhow, this card I had been thinking about for a while.  It was inspired by Crafting With Cristina's challenge which was to make something patriotic.  I don't know what I was thinking but completely missed the deadline 8(

Good news is, that there are actually plenty of challenges I can still submit it too.  I wanted to make this card regardless.  The digi I used from Whimsy Stamps is just absolutely adorable!!  And in the spirit of the elections we just had, here it is....

I used Designer's Calendar cart for "Election Day", Tags Bags & more for my tag, and Beyond Birthdays for my stars.
My cardstock is from DCWV-The Summer Glitter Stack

I used Copics on my cute lit' guy and used glitter on the stars and swirls all around him.  

The cute ribbon is from Holiday Inspirations which I got at Joann's.

I used my stars with swirls embossing folder from Sizzix for this part. I love the deep embossing that I got. It just "pops"!!
Embossing is my favorite technique right now 8)


Thank you for visiting! Have a great rest of the week everyone!!
