Red, White & Blue Gift Bag

It's almost the 4th of July already, summer is flying by.  It is scorching outside, so the only thing I can do is stay inside in the AC.  I have been trying to finish my grand daughter's patriotic dress for the 4th.  I got so caught up in coloring digital stamps, I put it off, now I am in a crunch.

I decided to do something a little different with this weeks sketch at Mojo Monday.  I have a few gift bags in my stash so I made a cute bag to pack my little gift in.  I used these chevron images at christmas time to decorate some gift tags and really loved the look, so I thought they would be perfect for my bag.

The chevron strips are actually cut from an adhesive backed red glitter card stock I found at Tuesday Morning.   The image is free image in Design Space (#M439A4), just use the hide contour feature to remove the heart.

The stars cut out is a back ground image from CTMH Artbooking cartridge,  layered with a piece of white glitter card stock.

The sentiment"Three cheers to the Red, White and Blue" is from Verve Stamps - it's a free digital stamp provided by this week's Mojo Monday Challenge - 3 Cheers Digi Set by Julee Tillman.  It's available thru June 30th, so be sure to stop by and pick it up.

I am really happy with the end result,  and it's the perfect gift bag for my grand daughters dress.
