STARS N STRIPES with Love to Create Challenge

Hello my crafty friends, 
Happy July!!!
Hope everyone had a great weekend and stayed cool during the hottest days ever!!! I also want to send a hug out to everyone that was effected by the storm that rolled through on Friday!!! I pray everyone has their power back and are recovering from any damage! Other than a broken patio umbrella and a bit of roof damage (thankful for insurance) we are okay here!

Today I am sharing some inspiration using a couple of cute images from Bugaboo Stamps for our latest challenge at Love to Create challenge blog!

I love these little people Deacon and Ava Baseball from Bugaboo Stamps
They were colored up with my Copic (of course) then fussy cut to 
sit on this bench (from Stamp Fairy), I colored in the grass and sky with clouds.
Using some gorgeous papers from Authentique Genuine 6 x6 bundle I 
created my layout by distressing the edges and then inking them with Navy.
 Did you notice I paper pieced the pennant Ava is holding, along with the 
knee patch on Deacon. Added some bling with jewels to the pennant, stars and Star Dust Stickles to Ava's socks and dress trim. Sentiment is from Taylor Expressions, ticket punches were fussy cut from the papers, then distress before adding them to my design. Hope you like .....

Want a chance to win some Bugaboo Stamps? Then come play with us this week at Love to Create Challenge , we would love to see your Stars N Stripes.
