At JAS, the theme is Memorial Day, and here is what I created:
The vintage clip art is courtesy of The Graphics Fairy. I highlighted parts of the image with a Sakura Jellyroll Stardust pen. I tore strips of red paper out of my stash and layered it onto the card base to mimic the flag's stripes. I had some dark blue star paper that I tore into a square, attached that, then mounted the vintage image onto the cardstock.
Simple, but pretty! Please join us at Just-A-Scrappin'!
