Happy July 4th

Happy July 4th to all. This is for today's FEATURED STAMPER # 178 - Charlene the Cookiebaker. I choose to CASE Charlene's WE LOVE OUR TROUPS. This is also for Saturday's INSPIRATION CHALLENGE # 239 - Oompa. I found my inspiration in the colors in this darling CIRCUS BEDDING. I used some dp from DCWV Summer matt pack. I used the same type of dp on the top but a lighter color. I used some red ribbon with stars instead of zigzag stitching and left off the large stars and USA. I used a square focal panel rather than a round one. I also used some gold star brads intead of colored ones for Friday's FREE FOR ALL # 19 - Gold Star. For my focal panel I used a digital set from TREEHOUSE STAMPS DIGITAL LINE called "Stars & Stripes. I colored my image with copics B41, B54, R21, R24, R27, R29, & Y26. I trimmed the bottom edge of my focal image, matt, base and dp at the bottom. Shannon will be so proud of me because I also decorated the inside with a strip of dp from the outside. Whoo Hoo, everyone have a safe and happy July 4th and remember no fireworks unless you are trained to use them. No injuries please.
