US of A

US of A - Yee-haw! The challenge at Sew Many Challenges is a recipe this week. The recipe has 4 components to it. We were to use blue, a diecut, ribbon and 3 round buttons.

My DP is Reminisce's American Stars, USA, and the blue star was cut from Freedom Stars. My ribbon is from Target's dollar spot a few years back. I love that all of my old stash was shuffled in my recent move, and is now being used!
My image is Cowboy Donkey by Sew Many Cards. I really enjoyed coloring him. Donkey was cut with a Spell Binders and distressed with Fired Brick distress inks.

This heart is today's Friday Freebie and you can get it here, but hurry; as it is only available for a short time. My DP for this card is My Mind's Eye Kaleidoscope. My butterfly punch is MS and I added some bling that I picked up at the convention. My Die cut is a Spellbinders.
The image is colored with Copic's and tied with a double ribbon using my Bow Easy.

My final card for today is one of Sew Many Cards new PJ pals. These all resemble real life kids who have health problems, that's why they are PJ pals! My image is Stryder, who is the 3 year old son of the owner of Sew Many Cards. I used some Matte Accents in the water.

My DP is Miss Elisabeth. The ice cream cone was cut using my Cricut. I think I used A Child's Year. My drops are recollections.
