TGF's July Retro-Fresh

Hi!  Me again!  It's time for TGF's monthly Retro-fresh challenge!  The challenge for July is Stars and Stripes but it doesn't have to be the usual Red, White and Blue.  Just as long as there are Stars and Stripes on your project, you're good to go.

I decided to use Space Ian and make a bit of an interactive card.

I printed out the sentiment.  I thought it would be fitting for Ian to actually move back and forth between the Moon and Earth.

Behind Ian are 2 beads and he glides on the twine.

Colored up Ian with Copics.  Added glossy accents to the heart on his flag.  The star print paper is from Basic Grey's Shine On paper pad which Cheryl got for me.  Thanks, came in handy!

The prize for this month is a biggie too!  One 4x6 rubber set and one clear set!  Be sure to use a TGF stamp that is at least 6 months old.  Click HERE for a list.  You have until August 7th at NOON to enter.  That's a whole month away so hopefully you'll be able to join in on the fun!  And be sure to check out the other members of the Showcase DT for more inspiration!

Thanks so much for reading!
