Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday – I hope your week is off to a good start! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Stinkin’ Inkers and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration for the Stars and/or Stripes challenge! I created fun ‘Cheers to Independence Day’ card with a vintage Americana feel.
I paired a rather patriotic Tim Holtz Paper Doll with a large Americana background stamp layered on distressed striped paper. I colored the flags red and added a few blue punched stars to complete the patriotic look.
I decorated in the inside with leftover striped paper and the remaining portion of the die cut used on the front, along with a computer-generated sentiment.
One more look – I’m loving how this turned out!
