Star's and Stripes

Well I took this weeks theme on SSDS of Star's and Stripes literally and (Tried) to create an American Flag the Star's and Stripes,  this isn't an easy task, I did some Wiki research to double check the Configuration  of 50 stars and or course the stripes.

The main card is A5 in size and I used some Red and Blue paper which is a pearl paper,  the stars I used my Cricut and set it to cut 50 stars,  1st batch too small Argggggggggg ,   second batch are ok but they are so hard to line up,  I finished off this card with the simple words 4th cut out using my Heritage Cartridge I then dressed that with WOC flowers in Red, White and Blue,   this card is Winging its way to my Friend in the US as I type ( well I hope its arrived now)

I hope my flag attempt doesn't upset anyone,  have a fab and safe 4th July all my Blogging American Friends.

Some Inspiration

This week it's time for another Photo Inspiration over at SSDS, I admit I struggled a little with this but choose something a little different by adding a layer of vellum to the front.

I used  a White Card Black,  the base has a panel of Embossed paper

I tried to find some images closer to those in the picture, so I used a Diecut Heart, Butterfly and found a champagne bottle and glasses I just added some Gem stones for some added bling and a sentiment on the front of the vellum. I finished off this make with pale pink Ribbon and some Gems for each corner.
