Tammy challenges us to use flags in our project. For my sample I started out with an image from Petals & Peace. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was cut and embossed with an Flourish exclusive Spellbinders die and colored with Copic Markers (Roses: Y13, Y15, Y17    Pine cones: E97, E99, E37   Pine bough: G21, G24, G28    background: Boooo, B000, B32).

Clear Spic pen was added over the darkest part of the roses and the image was adhered to a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock and hand cut into a slightly bigger layer.

Two 3 3/4″ long pieces of MME Lost & Found 2 Sunshine paper were adhered to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Solar White cardstock. A third strip was adhered over both pieces and part of a paper doily underneath that. The edges were stitched and brown May Arts Ribbon was tied around them. The ribbon was topped with a button which was tied on with Linen Thread.  The layers were adhered to the card base, a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Canyon Brown cardstock folded in half.

A sentiment from the same set was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a thin strip of cardstock. The right end was cut into a flag, the paper strip was bend into a wave. Parts of a brown Finesse Swirl finish off the card.
