For the CAS challenge to show your patriotism and the technique challenge to use shaving cream (and make your card smell nice!)
I tried various papers with this technique- Whisper White, glossy, shimmer white and Ranger specialty stamping paper. This last one was my favorite. It held up really well and took the ink the best.
I softened the look of it with a piece of vellum that was gold embossed with fireworks and our Statue of Liberty. I have made the climb to the top of this statue a few times and it is really spectacular. If you ever get a chance, visit her and Ellis Island. It is an emotionally moving experience.
God Bless all nations with peace and prosperity! Have a happy and safe holiday, y'all.

This card was for the Featured Stamper challenge for casing Technique Freak Kelly Acheson. I made a few small changes to her pretty card, I love the way she used the succulents as flowers and the soft color combination. The paper is retired SU and I tried to make the flowers look like an extension of the ones on the paper.

I really love my new Fuse tool, perfect for sealing shaker pouches. This was my first project with it and I managed to keep my lines pretty straight :) I imagine this would be great for Project Life scrap pages.
Supplies used for this card were: Stampendous mermaid and die, colored in Copics and highlighted with Wink Of Stella glitter. Hero Arts Mermaid kit for sentiment and sequins, Fuse paper kit on Bermuda Bay base. Half pearl to embellish.
