Blue, stars and stripes!

Hi everyone! Today is my first post as a member of the Oozak challenge dt and our challenge for the next two weeks is "Blue, stars and stripes". Well, surprisingly I don't have a lot of paper to fit this category but I managed and am really pleased with my card!

This image if from Jennifer Neilson from her etsy store and the papers are Times and Seasons by Echo Park and although it isn't in stock as it is an older collection, they have one of the largest selection of paper pads I have ever seen!  I am looking forward to seeing your projects and wish you luck, Oozak has great prizes for their winners!

Supplies are listed below:

Fabulous card with wonderful coloring of that cute image. I especially love how you colored her dress and hair. Those rosy cheeks are pretty darned cute too.

The paper pieced flag is a really nice touch.

Your paper choices, layering, and design are fantastic.
