Hello there! It's Product Spotlight Day at DeNami Design and today we're featuring this SUPER FUN image:

I always LOVED sparklers when I was a kid!!! Every 4th of July our family would get together for a big picnic, and it always seemed like it took FOREVER for it to get dark so we could do sparklers and watch the fireworks!!! Good times!

This card was so much fun to create! My goal was to capture the magic of the sparklers and fireworks that I have such fond memories of! I stamped the Sparklers image, added color with my Copic Sketch Markers, and then added sparkle with a Clear Star Gelly Roll pen! The blue panel is stamped with the Small Starburst image (tone on tone)---a great one to pair up with the Sparklers!

That's all for me today! I hope you're having a fantastic week! We are in Pittsburgh visiting family and friends! It's been TWO YEARS since our last visit, so it's GREAT to see everyone and catch up!!!

Pretty! I like the addition of the ribbon and buttons to balance the card! That's one thing I haven't gotten down yet - balance.

Love the frame you used! Such a great way to "spotlight" the stamp...that is, after all the assignement :-)
