Stars and Stripes

Hi everyone! I hope all of my fellow US citizens had a wonderful 4th of July and perhaps even get a nice long weekend. We had a nice restful day with both of us off work and are heading up to our camp for a couple of days then back to the rat race.

Today we were asked to use "Stars and Stripes" as our inspiration for La-la land crafts and I have used Saluting Luka to celebrate the 4th of July.

Papers are again a mish mash as I am trying to use stuff up, my stars are diecuts and they have buttons on them for a little bling and texture. The copics I used are listed below. Enjoy your holiday weekend!

this is a WOW! card. I love the image and your coloring ranks with the best. If I bring a large bag of paper will you match it up for me...your paper choices are always the best.

The paper choice is wonderful and I really like the design!

The star buttons on the diecuts are the perfect finishing touch!

TOTALLY ADORABLE Amanda - Love this! I love patriotic things and really love how you did this patriotic design with color. Nice change from just r/w/b; plus it's just the right amount of color! Fabulous! (I have that chevron paper too - one of my favorites!)

And fabulous coloring as always too! You always bring the images to life so well with your fantastic coloring! Absolutely adorable!!!
