Cup Full of Flowers

Hi All...this is my live post today at
Head on over and see what the DT has to "inspire" you with!!

Hello Classy Friends, Diane here with you today!!
This week our challenge is Red~White and Blue.....
using the inspiration photo below....

I sure gave this challenge a lot of thought and ended up doing nothing I had planned..LOL..

I decided to use Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight in a "stacking" effect....
I cut the larger die from Bo Bunny Soft Shades Double Delight paper
I cut the next size from white card stock and stamped Inky Antics "Daisy Bouquet"....
After coloring with my Copics I added Stickles to the flower centers 
and "Wink of Stella"  and Stardust Gelly Roll Pen to all the flower petals and leaves.

I used Joy! Craft foam pads large to mount my image on the larger die cut....
I felt it still need something besides the bow and added a few tiny blue birds

I invite YOU to join in our challenge this week....
Beverly always offers a great prize with 7 or more players...

and we would love to see YOUR project!!

Entering in the following challenges:
Craftin Desert Diva's .... Red White and Blue Linky Party
Craft Spot .... Patriotic
Cupcake Inspirations .... Celebrate

Open Minded Challenges .... Patriotic Colors
Shopping Our Stash .... Red~White~Blue
