Happy 4th of July!

Today marks the start of another Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge!!
This weeks color theme is

All cuts are from Plantin Schoolbook. The cityscape is sized to 5 1/2" wide, the white oval layer is 3 3/4" x 5", the black oval layer is 4" x 5 1/4" and the red oval layer is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I welded the card base using a couple of ovals I grabbed from PS too.

I sponged the clouds using some blue ink and a die cut cloud. Then I placed the flag in place and attached the cityscape on top of that.  Trimming the edges created a nice clean look for the line of buildings. I added the sentiment using some white MS ink and an old stamp from my stash.

To create this flag, I attached 1 1/4" of the red patterned paper to the bottom of the white oval (scraps from DCWV's summer stack) and placed the blue triangle next.  I cut some white strips to 1/4" and glued them on individually, using an extra 1/4" strip for spacing. The little silver stars are glued to the blue section last. These little stars are so cute but TINY... they are from a nail art kit I've had forever.

Here you can see the sparkle on the little stars. 

The card base is a oval shaped card. I love shaped cards and go on spurts where I make nothing other than shaped cards! :)

Well, I hope you all have a very happy and safe 4th of July! 

We'd love for you to come on over and play along with us at Die Cuttin' Divas!
