The 4th of July is rapidly approaching - and since we have small children, the celebration of that holiday always includes sparklers! When I first saw the bear from Stars & Stripes, I decided I could trim the star out and replace it with some sparkling fun :)
I started out with the sketch from Dina, but I must admit that I fiddled around a bit with the elements. I paired the bear with BasicGrey Cupcake paper (and can I just say that I have NOTHING patriotic in my stash!), and created the sparkler with a stick pin and tiara glitz stickles.
Be sure to check out how Susan, Giovana, Dina, Donelda & Donna each used the sketch, too.
