Happy Monday! It's time for another challenge at BBTB2, this time chosen by my dear friend and fellow MSU Spartan, Susan and wait 'til you see the FABULOUS challenge and project she has in store for you. Susan chose a Patriotic theme which gives everyone the opportunity to create for the Fourth a full week in advance. WooHoo! We're so hoping to see tons of red, white and blue from you all! I couldn't help but go to A Child's Year for a start since the adorable silhouettes really bring sweet memories of the celebrations of my childhood. I love a parade! But then I saw that little guy on the rocket and just had to use him. (I love fireworks even MORE!)
Shaped front using the shadows of the boy, fireworks from Stand and Salute, and sentiment from Celebrations. I took my colors from the fab striped DP with a little extra pop for the fireworks with gold and silver mirror CS. I wasn't quite sure what color to cut the boy in. All red didn't do it for me, so I cut him again in the light blue and trimmed a bit on both cuts and embossed and popped the layers to add a bit more interest.
I really lucked out on the tiny stars. They're glitter foam I had in my stash and they fit perfectly on the cut. The dimensional stars in the center of the fireworks were also in my stash. I managed quite a bit of dimension and finished off the sentiment with a bit of doodling. My DT sisters have truly knocked this one out of the park, so be sure and visit BBTB2 and start waving your flag. Can't wait to see what you create.
I'm also entering this in My Sheri Crafts "Oh I Love America" Challenge.
