Penny Black Saturday Challenge 12 Stars and Stripes

This weeks Penny Black Challenge is 'STARS AND STRIPES'
You'd think this would be quite simple wouldn't you?

Well ....I have loads of stripy papers, and loads of papers with stars on... but do you ever have one of those moods where NOTHING is right? I hadn't coloured or even chosen my stamp so there was no issue about what would match or anything like that, I just didnt like any of the papers that should have been perfect!

So I used my favourite DCWV pocket full of posies papers (it does have little stars on, if you look VERY carefully!!)

In the end, and after LOTS of changes, I came up with this....

I'm not sure I'm completely 'hoppy' with it, I tried to glitter the frogs jumpers, and made a bit of a mess!!

When I showed it to hubby, he said.... 'but theres no stars or stripes on it!'


Actually they are quite subtle but they are there if you look!!
