'Stars and Stripes'

Hi girls! It's time for some mid-month inspiration with a gorgeous new
color palette from Words & Painterly!

'Stars and Stripes'

I'm not going to lie girls...this color combo was tough!!!! As usual, (I hate it but it's true) I had left this layout until the last moment, and I really didn't know what I was going to do, but I pulled out some Bobunny papers and some 2 Crafty Chipboard and just tried not to overthink it :)
Sometimes the layouts I struggle with turn out to be my favourites! Does that ever happen to you?

Here is the June challenge:

You can find more details about the challenge here.

I used a piece of some of my son's old jeans in the background, 
love the deep blue color of the denim,
and what's more American than a pair of Levi's?

The prompt this month is 'Be Proud of your Country'...and even though it's very unfashionable these days to be a proud American, I don't give a s***, ....I am! I came to the United States - (by myself)- looking for a fresh start in my life with a couple hundred bucks, two suitcases and a whole lot of hopes and dreams, all of which I have worked very hard to have come true. That's the beauty of my country, you can be anything you dare to be, all it takes is hard work and determination and you'll get there :)

I used some 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces here, one called 'Cassies's Flourish'
and some pieces of another called 'Stars' that I painted with some watercolors
and then lightly stamped.

I hope I inspired you to be proud! and show us your interpretation of the challenge :)
