Red White and Blue Birthday

Well, six months has come and gone. It's definitely true that time moves more swiftly as you grow older, and this last few months have flown. It's been great fun being on the Squigglefly Design Team and it's only fitting to finish with a red, white and blue salute! I'm doing a little bit of self-celebrating today 'cuz it's my birthday and I can!
I used the Paper Patterns Pack 1 background (Spring Flowers), changing the color to blue in PSP and accenting them with red jewel centers. For this occasion I just had to use my fave Magnolia Tilda and adorn her with a sprinkle of Petaloo flowers and more red "jewels", and coloring with Copic Markers. Please pop on over to the Squigglefly Blog and join in this Red White and Blue Challenge, if you can. Images are available at their store where there's always something new to play with. Want to try before you buy? There are some truly scrumptious freebies here for you to download so please come on over and jump in on the fun.

Remember, there's a new challenge every Monday, and with the next Design Teams ready to go you're sure to find lots more ideas to inspire you. I'm looking forward to "being challenged" by all these creative ladies. It's been a fun six months and I'm going to miss it.
