Stars Stripes Or how about Both

Stars Stripes or how about both is this weeks challenge that started Friday. Hope you like because I picked it as it was Amercian Indepence Day and this weekend there was so much happenning in the Uk with the final of the Tennis omg wasnt that a match and also the Tour de France visiting Yorkshire so lots of stars on our TV and soil.
Now you can pick any theme just as long as it has either Stars or Stripes so this could be male or female.

Our fab and generous sponsor is 
who is giving the winner a wooping 7 images of their choice.
 So if you havent entered what are you waiting for.
This weekend was my sisters youngests 11th birthday such a shame she isnt with us anymore to see him grow up but his grandparents are doing a fab job. So my card is for his birthday.

The DP is echo park sweet girl and I have used memory box star circle cut in half and placed around the image. Die cut Jacks name and added some faux stitching. The image is coloured with promarkers and then 3d glossed for that expoxy effect. The silver mirri layer has been embossed with a cuttlebug birthday folder and of course i had to add a little ribbon hidden behind the layers if you look closely.
Hope you like as much as Jack did and he had a fab birthday with lots of family and friends about visiting him. So now it is your turn and this week it get the very hard decision of picking the top three thankfully my teamies do have some input. Also have you seen the fab job our new GDT has done not forgetting our current GDT wow they are both keeping us on our toes so go check them out. If you click on there names it will jump you to there blog so you can leave them some love.
Have a lovely day the sun is trying hard to peep through the clouds so i will go walk the dog.

Fab card, love the stars and strips.
Yes it was a very sporting weekend, you missed out F1 that was a great race and lots going on with the UK driver wining.
What a pity his mother is not around to see him grow up so glad his grandparents are doing a good job.
