Stars and Stripes - Fab N Funky Challenge #128

Hi again,  Two posts in one day....whoooo - I've been very busy :D

It's time for a new Challenge at

and we'd like to see Stars and Stripes on your project this week.  

 I've used a super cute image from one of our sponsors this week, The Paper Shelter.  She is called Cirque and I had thoughts of parades and marching bands when I coloured her.    Loved the big hair!     I used Spellbinders Banner Basics Two to create the tabs and SB Floral Ovals and Scallop Ovals for the frame.    You cannot see in the photo, but the stars on the top are plastic and the bottom one is felt with a little bling added.

Here are the Copics used:

For more inspiration, please hop on over and see the fabulous creations my DT members have come up with. We'd love it if you played along with us.

I will be entering the following challenges:

2 Sisters Challenge #98 - Red, White & Blue
Just us Girls Challenge #143 - Stars & Sparkle
My Sheri Crafts Challenge #88 -  Oh I Love America
Card Makin Mamas Challenge #48 - Red, White & Blue
Stampin with the Dragon  - Red, White & Blue
Sweet n Sassy Digi Challenges  - Stars N Stripes

Thanks so much for stopping by and your lovely comments are always appreciated. Hugs, Pat K.x

That image is too sweet! I love your textured background paper, and the oval mat - oh no! I feel a purchase coming on, I'd better go to bed! ... actually it's gone midnight on a work night, better just go to bed anyway, lol. TFS, Donna ☺
