Color and/ or Flag at 613 Avenue Create

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing with you today is my DT creation for the latest challenge at 613 Avenue Create, where the optional twist is a "create your own, using colors and or flags". With us celebrating America's birthday yesterday, I knew immediately that I'd go with an American theme.

Luckily for me the sponsor Inky Impressions had the perfect image, Flag Lili. She would have been great on her own, but I stepped it up by using the Work of Art stamp set from Stampin' Up! to create an Old Glory inspired backdrop for her...

Card: Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler
Ink: Cherry Cobbler and Tempting Turquoise (both stamped off first)
Stamp set: Work of Art
Sponsor Image: Flag Lily from Inky Impressions printed onto Whisper White
Markers: Skin Tone, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Sky and Smoky Slate Blendabilities (all retired) and White Gel Pen (stars on backdrop)

July linky at DL.ART
#159 Red, White and Blue at DL.ART
#35 AG at Art by Mi Ran
#153 Red, White and Blue at Brown Sugar

I'll be back tomorrow with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.
