USA Pup - for Scrapy Land Challenges

It's the first Wednesday of the month, which means it's time for a new challenge at the Scrapy Land Challenge Blog.  It's also the day before Independence Day here in the US, so I'm going with a Patriotic Theme for today's challenge project. 

First, though, some information about Scrapy Land Challenges: Challenges run for 2 weeks, and are always Anything Goes, as long as you use a die that the Scrapy Land Store sells.  Scrapy Land carries over 55 brands of dies, so you have plenty to choose from!  There are 2 winners each challenge for a $10 gift certificate.

In honor of July 4th, here's my Patriotic Pup:

I started by cutting out the 3 stitched stars.  They are from Avery Elle. If you used the search engine in the Scrapy Land Store, you will find many similar star dies that would work.  Then, using an alphabet die set from Spellbinders, I die cut the USA.  Scrapy Land doesn't carry this exact alphabet, but has many that would work just the same as this one did.  Again, use the search function to find them.

I colored up the cute, patriotic pup from Bugaboo Stamps, fussy cut him, and glued him to the front of the card.  I found the blue/stars background paper at Pixel Scrapper.  It is digital.  I wanted the stars to be very small, so instead of printing it on a full sheet of paper, I brought it into a Pages software and shrunk it to a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 size to make the stars nice and small.

The cute patriotic flair button and pretty crinkle ribbon are from D.L. Art. 

Anything Goes with a die Scrapy Land Store sells -- easy, right?  I do hope you join us in the next 2 weeks! 

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
Outlawz Festive Fridays -- your national flag
Cut It Up Challenges -- Red, White, and Blue
Papercraft Challenge -- stars
Digichoosday -- ATG
