Today in the USA we are celebrating 237 years of independence & freedom. I chose to incorporate 3 challenges in today's card - CC433, SC443, & WT434.
WT434 - State Flower Trivia
The Ohio state flower is the Scarlet Carnation. It was chosen as the state flower in memory of President William McKinley. He was given a scarlet carnation by his opponent during his campaign for the Presidency. He was the 25th President & one of 7 Presidents from Ohio. President McKinley was assassinated while in office in 1901. FF was the closest look of a carnation that I have.
SC443 - I flipped the sketch so to not cover all of the Darice fireworks ef.
CC433 - Use Red/White/Blue with a desser option of patriotic. I used the Star & Stripes efs. After embossing the stripes I used the white ink pad to the raised stripes.
Have a safe holiday to my US fellow stampers. Here in NE Ohio it is raining - indoor picnics today!
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. I'll be back later to comment.
