Simon Says Challenge - Stars and Stripes

Good morning ! I hope you are all OK on this sunny and calm Wednesday morning !

Can you believe its time again for another challenge over at Simon Says Challenge ?

This week, our challenge is STARS AND STRIPES !

The lucky winner will win a $50 shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store !

The DP's I used are by Graphic 45 "A Proper Gentleman"

The image is by Penny Black and called "Fly Away". He has been coloured with a mixture of ProMarkers and Copics.

I stitched all the papers with my sewing machine.

The stars I cut from some Nestie stars.

I covered all the edges in Adirondak dabber gold paint for the aged look

The sentiment is a digi download from Bizzy Becs.

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week. The rest of the DT's cards are just gorgeous, you must hop over and take a look !

I am entering the following challenges :

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Fussy and Fancy (hope it qualifies ;o) !)

Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes

Tuesday Throwdown - Stripes
