Stars & Stripes at Eureka Stamps - GDT

Hi everyone,

Several months ago I was lucky enough to be chosen to Guest Design for Eureka Stamps and this is my first entry for the month of July.  Thank you so much Jackie and the wonderful DT for having me.

I've used a cute digi #7701 Cheerleader, along with #14803 Celebrate sentiment.  The dp is from a very old stack ...cover is missing so unfortunately I do not know the name. I cut the oval using a Quickutz die.  The ribbon is also from my stash. Diamond dust Stickles added to the pom-poms.

Copics used:
E11, E21, E00, E000
R29, 27, 24, 22
C2, 1, 00
B29, 28, 24, 21
Shading: T2, T1, T0

I would like to enter into the following challenges:
Inky Impressions #114 :  3, 2, 1
The Sisterhood of Crafters:  Stars and Stripes
Perfect Sentiment #85 - Red, White & Blue
Gingerloft Challenge - Red, White & Blue

Thanks so much for stopping by and your lovely comments are always appreciated.
