Magnolia Down Under Challenge #103

I decided to honour my American friends and came up with an idea for a July 4th card. The USA has also been playing a large part in my family at the moment with my hubby arriving home from there yesterday and my daughter heading to Costa Rica via Los Angeles on Tuesday - she's going to do some volunteer work with giant sea turtles!

 I found a picture of the American flag on the net and "chopped" it before printing to produce a striped background and a star panel. I used my star nesties to pop Cheerleader Tilda on and my Magnolia swirl die to create a "firework" burst of a floral arrangement. I've sparkled up the trim on Tilda's costume and her pom poms - it looks so much better IRL!

HAPPY 4th of JULY to all my American friends....
and Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the gals gorgeous work with Kristy's sketch over at the MDUC blog.
