Happy Flag Day!!!

I just looooove patriotic stuff, so I knew I had to make a fun card for Flag Day today.  For those of you who don't know, we celebrate Flag Day in the US to celebrate the creation of our flag back in 1777.

I was inspired by a wreath I saw at Michaels for this card, and no, there isn't a flag on this card, but the inspiration is there :)

    Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge - Week 29 - Eroded Metallic

    It's time for another last-minute entry to the COC3 challenge!  This was a new technique for me, and it didn't quite come out like everyone else's did, but I still really like it!  The best thing though is I did it twice and both came out differently.  Gotta love that about art.  I'll share my other card with this technique next week.  If you don't have a copy of COC3, you can get one here.

    Their amazing sponsor this time around is Inspiration Emporium!!  They're giving one lucky artist a $50 gift certificate!  WOW!!


    The dress form used to be like,  my most used BIGZ die, and yesterday I realized that I haven't played with it in awhile, so that was my first thought for this card.


    I wanna show a closeup of the sentiment, because I LOVE it.


    Some challenges, of course:

    Asian Doll

    I just love this stamp.  It reminds me of an Asian doll my grandmother had when I was a little girl.  She always loved Asian things, especially the Geishas.
