Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop 
this week is devoted to patriotic colors in honor of Labor Day next Monday! 
Love the Red, White, & Blue!!

You may be here from Helen's blog! Hello! Be sure to hop over to  Sandy's blog when you are through here. Get ready to celebrate the holiday in blog hop style!!!

So here's my card:

Here is our inspiration photo:
So I went totally flag this week! lol  I saw something similar to this on a video somewhere but can't remember where! So I put my take on it! This was fun to make!

So there's actually very little stamping involved, but I did enjoy using my 
Swirly Scribbles Thinlets to make the stripes of Old Glory!  When I first saw this set I thought-ya whatever. Now I use it all the time!! It's so much fun!!!

For the stars section, I first embossed the Night of Navy with the 
Lucky Stars Embossing Folder & added a clear star from the 
Metallics Sequin Assortment! They were the perfect fit for the embossed stars! A bit of Silver Dazzling Details finished them off!

The words in the stripes are from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set. Thought it was neat to add a bit of sentimental words!

And lastly, yes, copping to using retired product!!! Whey they every retired the 
Little Letters Thinlets Dies I'll never know! They were the only "normal" sized letter dies we had! The Big ones are awesome, but these little guys are perfect for cards and scrapbooking! So I'm on a mission to bring them back!! So better to ask for forgiveness later than permission first!

Happy Labor Day. It's still not the end of summer in my mind tho!!! I'm hanging on to the summer weather as long as I can!!! I will so miss my summer days. Depression until next June!

Happy Stampin'!
