Anything Goes! My Paper Crafting Challenge

Hello my crafty friends, hope you all are doing well this hump day. I'm sad to say that this is my last day to create over at My Paper Crafting.  Summer takes up a lot of my time with mowing grass, trimming brushes, running the hubby to and fro between fields, etc...I don't craft as much during the summer as I do in the fall/winter. So I am going to miss all the gals at My Paper Crafting. Melin has been a wonderful hostess and is incredibly talented. I sure hope you will continue to follow her and see what all she is coming up with next!! Her digi's and cut files are amazing and so fun to work with. So with that said, I am hoping to one day be back designing with her and her wonderful team!! Thanks for a wonderful 6 months Melin, I had a blast designing for you!!

Now on to my card. Our challenge today is anything goes. So since it is so close to July, I thought I would do a patriotic card.  I used my Cuttlebug with the Stars folder and the Diamond Plate folder for my background, ribbon to make my flag, Viva Decor Pearls for the "stars" on the flag, the pole is just a piece of scrap kraft paper and my USA is from the Cricut cart Base Camp. I saw this card on Pinterest I think. lol Not really sure, but I can tell you that I lifted it from somewhere. Thought it was so cute to make a flag from ribbon!  I hope you will go over to My Paper Crafting and check out what else goes with my design team sisters!  I am still on a couple other design teams so I will still have projects coming, just not quite as often over the summer. So enjoy your summer like I intend to enjoy mine! Before we know it, old man winter will be back and I will be house bound once again. Yes, I tend to hibernate in the winter. lol So I gotta enjoy the great outdoors while I can. Happy Crafting!
