Picnic Time!

Good morning, everyone!  Welcome to another new challenge this week, at Shelly's Images! Since Fourth Of July is right around the corner, what better theme for this week, than Stars, Stripes and Sparkle! There's lots of ways to use this theme, too - It doesn't have to be for Independence Day! Use the theme anyway you  want - Your imagination can run wild - As long as you include Stars, Stripes and Sparkle on your project! Sound fun?! Great, then start creating, and then link up with us at Shelly's Images, for your chance to win!

Our featured image, today, is Picnic, available, today only, for a special price, in the Shelly's Images Store. Hurry and get it while its on sale!

Now, let's talk about my project.  I've used picnic, by Shelly's Images, colored with Promarkers. Glitter and Sparkle has been added to the lemonade glasses with a clearstar gelly roll pen.  The flowers, by Recollections and Prima, are all from my stash, as is the ribbon. Pearls were added for the flower centers.  I used two buttons that were recycled from old clothing tht has been thrown away. My card layout uses sketch (#18), below, at Sketch And Stash

This card reminds me of a picnic at the beach!
