Lady Liberty

Here is one of my new Kenny K images I just got.  She is a pre-colored image.  I love the pre-colored images, just means I can work more with accessorizing and less with the coloring.  LOL  Lazy?  Me?  NOOOOO!  LOL  Besides, they color better than I do!  I used some DP from Scrapbooks Gone Digital, I used an embossing folder (the star paper in the background), and a couple die cuts.  I also used a border punch.  I added two stick pins I made especially for this card.  My goal was to create some pins that looked like sparklers (you know those fireworks that are supposed to be kid safe that shoot sparks and you can spell your name with them in the dark).  Or, maybe they are more like roman candles?  Either way, my goal was to make stick pins that would remind you of fireworks.  Did I succeed?  The sentiment is from Create With TLC (I added the word LADY).  I added three star shaped brads on the bottom of the page below Mae Western.  Oh, and I made the flower (you can see how by using my picture tutorial HERE).  I can’t help but feel like I need to do something else, but for the life of me, I just can’t think of what it is…I’ve had this done for a couple of days and haven’t been able to post it for that reason.  I’ve finally given up trying to figure it out…

Thanks for looking!
