Patriotic Wreath

Good morning everyone....hope all is well with you and your's!! I striped all the sheets and blankets off the beds and have been washing clothes for the last couple of hours. I actually did a little dusting yesterday and later today I'll run the sweeper and mop. Don't ask me what has gotten into me...the cleaning bug musta bit me last night...LOL!!! Anyway....  I made this card last night but was too tired at 1:00 AM to upload till's for the Color Challenge on Splitcoast to use red/white/blue. I just love patriotic cards and already had all the papers and stamps on my counter so this came together real fast. 

The wreath from Taylored Expressions 4th of July Wreath set was colored with Copics, cut out with the coordinating die, and popped up on foam dots. The sentiment flags were cut from the Taylored Expressions Graphic Greetings Patriotic stamp. The punched star with the button, twine, and the crazy sewing finish it off. 

Thanks for stopping by today....I'm off to finish my laundry and then I can play in the craft room till supper time...woot!!!!
