Stars and Stipes? Really? It's A OSAAT Challenge.

It's high noon! and apart from my dinner not being anywhere near started yet, One Stitch At A Time's new Challenge has!!
Today's the day when some of our New Design Team show off their first makes, so pop over to the Challenge blog and if you can to their blogs too and give them all the hi ho silver's you can, it's always a bit nerve racking on your first Challenge! So what is this weeks challenge?? It's...(Hold your breath for a few seconds, as there's no drum roll or loud announcement as Sid and Voice Over Man have had a falling out) ...

Stars and Stripes!!

What do you first think of when someone says Stars and Stripes? Apart from thinking about hubby's underwear, which isn't, I think, and I guess you do too, red, white and blue of the American flag. So when I had Stitchy's Ice Princess to play with, I decided not to go any where near red, but stay with soft pinks, a touch of lilac and a lot of soft blue. You can find the Ice Princess here in the Stitchy Bear Stop!
I've used loads of Stickles and mirco fine glitter, which doesn't show up too well here, and some papers I've had for years, from Papermania. Dots, stars and stripes. Now, I don't know about you, but Papermania has improved a whole bunch since I bought these papers, (in my view) These are lovely but I found them a little 'thin' so, that just teaches me, don't hold on to those papers you have stashed away, stroking them, this week, get them out, get them all out and USE them!! Because believe it of not, paper does go out of fashion! (they don't, but you know the next lot will be even better!)
The flowers I made myself and the rest from my stash, the card is just over 7"x7" which I made by adding two pieces of card together, and you can't even see the join. I coloured using Promarkers. (of course!)
That's it! Very sort post from me today (short post????) as I'm not here, this is just a shadow of me typing this as I'm out in the garden doing something with flowers, or eating or still trying to work out, what I'm going to do with something I rescued from a skip... hubby says, 'take it back to the skip, it looked so much better there.'
Have a very Crafty Day! Thank you for popping by!

Now, Stitchy, we need An Ice prince! Then, wouldn't this make a lovely Wedding card?
