Patriotic Hues for the Fourth

Happy 4th of July to all of my American friends.  Today we’ve got a new Hues to Use Challenge at Power Poppy to show off.  I started with this sweet cake on a platter image from Power Poppy’s set, Tea in the Garden.  I think this luscious cake and those decadant strawberries look perfect for a 4th Celebration.  And I think a deep blue cake platter like that would be lovely.  

Aren’t these colours great?  It’s a fun inspiration picture of our fearless leader Marcy, just doing what she does in her own fabulous way with a skateboard.  Having now met the kids, I see her daughter Lulu all over this photo :) 

I kept the details simple with some fun gingham paper as the background, a scalloped edge and a bit of twine and enamel dots to finish the design.  The embossed sentiment is from another Power Poppy set, Natural Beauties.  

Here’s the inside stamping.  And the Copics I used below.  

So jump on in and join us with these Hues to Use!
