Happy 4th of July

Creative With Stamps Challenge #28 is up and running with the theme of "FLAG". In thinking about what I would do for the challenge, my mind immediately went to the US Celebration of July 4th, Independence day. I dug deep into the way-back stash, and pulled out PTI Vintage Picnic, which has a variety of baskets and things to fill them for different seasons/occasions. It was perfect for the direction in which I wanted to go, and this is what I came up with.

Please head on over to the Creative With Stamps Blogcheck out what the Design Team has come up with to inspire you, and share your creation in the gallery. Happy crafting! 

Stamps: PTI Vintage Picnic.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaFine Onyx Black, Antique Linen Distress Ink.
Paper: Neenah Solar White, SU Cherry Cobbler and Marina Mist.
Accessories: Nestabilities circle dies, Copic markers, Sizzix embossing folder, foam tape, SU star and laabel punch.

Beautiful CAS design! The elements are so well integrated into your focal grouping and the addition of the embossed background add the depth and texture that elevate your design and take it to the next level.

I always associate picnics with the 4th of July so I love that you chose to go in that direction. Also, the star behind the "4th" and the embossed star background are nice touches. Great job!
