American Boy

It's day 3 of the Our Craft Lounge Spotlight Set of the Week - All About the USA!

Today I decided to step away from the red, white & blue and switch it out with orange, green and teal. lol! I love this collection of My Minds Eye papers (Just Dreamy/Brilliant collection). I love that everything coordinates and makes it really easy to put a creation together. (Did you know you can find MME at Eclectic Paperie?)

I used the "proud to be American' star from the All About the USA set (OCL), trimming off the "proud to be", colored it with Copic markers (also available at Eclectic Paperie!), and layered it on the circles with foam tape.

The star border is stamped in black and each star colored green. I cut out various sizes of stars from the paper and popped them over the star strip with foam tape.

I cut the word "boy" out of the paper, layered it on a star and then onto the tag.

I ended up with a pretty cute boy card - birthday, or just 'cuz, don't you think? I love versatile sets!

Have you checked out the OCL forums yet! You should!
What color should we use tomorrow....hmmmm!
