I started with a base of Night of Navy, the first layer is generic white then real red. My image layer is on Whisper White. I punched two stars using punches from SU. One in red the other in white glitter paper from my stash. I tried doing the stripes several ways. I ended up using a finger dauber. I liked it the best. I didn't want everything perfect on here. Then I used a Cricut Cart, A Year of Children. I glued the children waving their flags on here. The inside has red paper. I used my Cricut and cut out Let Freedom Ring.
This is for The Twisted Sistah's. Pat Smethers came up with the challenge and it was to make an Americana card with NO PINK! If you would like to play along with us be sure to use the keywords TSC0701. We would love to have you!
Pat this was fun and a real challenge since I have no Patriotic stamps! Shame on me.
I also played along with Shirt. The challenge was dust off the old Cricut and make a card.

Oh Sylvia- way to go Sister! What a look of freedom, and children portray that so well! (This is also perfect for Shirley's CCEE from Thurs- you should add it, it is sooo cute! The keywords are CCEE1126.) Love your star and the beautiful distressing! Well done! Hugs....

This is awesome, I love your stripes you made with the dauber-very creative. The silhouette is so cute, I really like silhouettes. Every card with one, grabs my attention in the gallery. How cool that your card qualifies for the CCEE challenge, too. I am so thrilled you joined us. Thanks.
