Waiting for the Parade

***Please scroll down to see my debut card as a July Guest Designer for Crafty Catz!!!***

Just like my blog title, this cutie is called Waiting for the Parade. She can be found at Mo's Digital Pencil along with a ton of other amazing and fun to color images.
I made some more fun pinwheels to decorate the card with and added some pearls to the centers and distressed with Tea Dye DI. I have no idea the paper I used :( I did add glitter glue to the fireworks to add a bit of pizzazz, though.
I made this card on the 5th of July, so my colors couldn't be anything but red, white, and blue, right?

Skin: E000,00,11, 21 and R20, 22
Hair: E21, 25, 29
Blue: B32,34,37,39
Red: R32, 35, 37, 59
Band-aid and ground: E41, 43
White: W1, 3, 5
and some Blender and BV31 for around the image

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
