Stars and Stripes

It's time again for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! Boy where does the time go? It seems to really fly by in the summer doesn't it?

We have a toppings option for you this time and it's to use stars and/or stripes.

A long time ago I was given this image and I finally got around to colouring it with my Copics. I think it is so adorable but I don't know what the image is called or what company it is from. Do you? If so would you let me know please?

Cardstock: SU, Neenah
PP: Fancy Pants
Punch: EK
Rhinestones: Recollections
Stamps: Paper Bakery and ?
Ink: Versafine, Memento

As you can see I chose to use the Toppings option by adding stars.
Sure hope you will join us!
