This week's challenge at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog is to use Stars & Stripes on your project. Be sure to visit the blog and see how the rest of the Design Team interpreted this challenge -- not everyone went with a patriotic theme.
I chose to use Patriotic Cocoa and went with a simple design since there was so much "busy-ness" with the gingham paper. I printed the sentiment below Cocoa AFTER I colored him. That was living dangerously! I used Spellbinders Labels 7 to cut out the image panel. Since I was using the largest die and therefore had no larger size to mat the panel, I traced around the outside of the die on my blue cardstock and cut it out with scissors.
I colored Cocoa and his star with my Copic markers. I used some stickles on the perimeter of the star for some sparkle and also added subtle sparkle to the stars with my Sakura glitter pen. Some baker's twine from The Twinery finished off my card.
