Stars & Stripes

So here I am doing it again!  Entering a challenge at the last minute.  There's just a few hours til this challenge closes at Die Cuts r Us' A Crafty Little Place.  It's a sketch challenge with a stars and stripes theme.  So this is my card entry.  I just got this cute stamp from DCRU today!  It's my first Puddle Jumpers stamp by Lori Boyd.  Hopefully I'll be adding some of her friends to my collection too.  Anyway, she is named Emma and she has a cute bunny friend.  Emma is all dressed in her red, white & blue outfit to go check out the 4th of July fireworks.  (I know it's already past but I like to make up stories for these little characters in my head).

Here's a close up of the bunny holding a little flag.  I made it with the smallest rectangle nestability and used felt from PTI.  I stamped the USA letters with PTI's Simple Alphabet stamp set.  I wanted to try this after I saw that Nicole Heady had stamped on her felt too.  I don't know why I didn't think of that too.  Then I stuck on a cute star sticker and bling.  The flag is attached to a little toothpick I colored blue with my Copic pen. 

Here's a close up of the stars I punched out from some DP.  I stuck on dome epoxy stickers over them to make them stand out a bit.  After I took the pictures I realized I didn't have any stripes on this card.  Hmmm, do the 2 red stripes on the bottom of her dress count?  Oh, oh, now I remember ... the stars on the right DP are arranged like stripes.  I think that is what I was thinking.  Oh well, that is my first entry for A Crafty Little Place.  Must go link it now. 

Thank you for reading and have a great day!
