Celebrating Stars and Stripes

Good Morning all,

First I want to Thank everyone for all of their lovely comments on my projects lately. I really love reading them. I am so glad that you all like them and I do hope I give you some inspiration to try new things. :D

Today we have a New Challenge over at One Stitch At A Time Challenge 264 -Anything Goes with Layer It Up.
We totally want to see your projects with lots of layers paper or ribbons as long as it contains layers.

Well you know we are right around the corner from celebrating 4th of July. It will be here before you know it, right?
My project is a banner I created using a 3 piece pk digital stamps Stars and Stripes by BBKakes. It is so great for 4th of July projects, cards or even to use as embellishment on a scrapbook page. :D

Well here it is -
For my banner I used Graphic 45 medium tags and lined them with BOBunny Anthem Paper Collection. I just love this collection the colors are so bright and festive for 4th of July.
I also fussy cut a lot of the paper layers and popped them up with 3D pop dots. Once I layered all my papers I fussy cut my little gals and popped them up as well.

Here is a close up of the first little tag. Isn't she just so cute. 
I used Mercury Glass Stickles on her little outfit, shoes and the
USA Flag. and around her little star antennas. 

Here is Lady Liberty she so cute too. 
I used yellow stickles around her hat and torch. 

On this little one I used star dust stickles on the USA shirt, skirt, socks and pompoms.
