Oh Say Can You See
I didn't manage any patriotic makes in time for the 4th but there's no reason not to celebrate the USA all year 'round. Besides, there are plenty of challenges still to be entered like the Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge.
With this pic as inspiration, how could I resist? Ya think there's enough red white and blue? The adorable image is #1488 Oh Say Can You See by Sandra Caldwell. Digital paper behind is recolored in my printing program (original is black and white) from the Graphicals Paper pack from Gecko Galz and the sentiment if from the Show Us Your Stars and Stripes Collage set. The gorgeous crinkle ribbon bow is from the Patriotic Bundle from DL.Art with the royal blue option and I've added glitter foam stars, a blingy starburst, a stretch of starry ribbon and of course, the flag from my stash.
Here's a closeup of the patriotic cutie #1488 Oh Say Can You See. She's colored with Copics and I've added tiny gem stars to her earrings. Sandra has lots of patriotic images, but this one is one of my faves. I think the title is the cutest (named by my teamie Crafting Vicky) with the little bear peeking out from behind her tall hat and I've gotta say I can't help but get teary eyed with our national anthem is played. God Bless America, land that I love.
I'm adding this to the DL.Art July Linky Challenge, the DL.Art Thankful Thursday Summer Fun Challenge (celebrating the 4th of July), Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #61 AG, Papercraft Happy #2 AG with a Girl, Jo's Scrap Shack FCC#196 AG, Glitter 'N' Sparkle # 247 Red, White and Blue, Creatalicious #118 AG w/optional Red, White and Blue and Really Reasonable Ribbon #167 AG w/ribbon.
