Happy 4th of July

I was so excited that Linad extending the CC2 #10 for an additional week!  Sadly, I keep forgetting it is now on a Friday!  We have opened our books to page 37 have been instructed to make Tim's "Tissue Wrap Flowers."  Oh I struggle with these, truly I do!  Since we are going to friends for the 4th of July, I wanted to make them a little, "thank you" and wanted my flowers to look more festive for celebrating the 4th!  Here is my take on the TWF challenge.  "The Funkie Junkie Boutique" is the sponsor for this challenge and is offering a $25 gift certificate.   Unruly PaperArts, RAQ #2 wants you to put your "Best Bouquet" forward, so I am linking up my Patriotic Floral Bouquet at UPA!  Simon Says Stamp and Show is looking for "Depth of Distress" and I do believe I have covered both!
Can't tell you how I made the flowers, but I can tell you that I inked by background tag, which was cut from white card stock using Tim's tag die.  The flag from I Brake For Stamps, who is also having a challenge for "I Brake For Summer Fun," was colored with Distress Markers and I torn around the edges!   I inked up a 6" wooden skewer for my flag pole.  The stars are from TIM.  I left one flower white, the others were sprayed with Dylusions!  Cut out the July from Tim's Seasonal collection and mounted these on card stock! 

Thank you for stopping by!  For all of you celebrating July 4th, have a wonderful and safe day of Independance!
