Red White and Blue for Digi Haven

I hope everyone one had a Happy and Safe
4th of July Celebration
We certainly did...
The afternoon started with lunch and beer at a local Irish Pub, outdoor seating
Then watching a 4th of July parade
We took a walk around a little lake and park in the late afternoon
Next stop...
Another park where we listened to a live band while waiting for the fireworks display to start
Just a great day hanging with the hubster
Now that we are home - it's 11:00 p.m. and I need to write this blog entry for Friday morning
My share today is for the Design Team at Digi Haven
Our theme for this fortnight challenge is RED, WHITE and BLUE
Please remember to use a digital image  or sentiment in your creation
You can read the rules on "How to Play" HERE
I decided to make a 4th of July rosette to hang as a decoration
My FREE sentiment can be found HERE
My inspiration came from a tutorial I found on You Tube - which I adapted to make a smaller size
as well as adding my own finishing touches
Pattern paper from Bo Bunny - Anthem
Kraft paper from My Favorite Things
Large Doily die cut - Martha Stewart Crafts  found HERE
Stars were cut from Cricut cartridge - George & Basic Shapes - page 115 <star1> at 2 1/2"
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Tea Dye
Finished my project with Red Rhinestones, Wooden star buttons tied with navy blue fibers
And last of all - used Raffia with Red and Blue fibers for the hanging
Part One
When you are finished watching Part can watch Part Two
I hope you enjoyed my share today, as well as the tutorial
Make sure to visit Digi Haven and check out the rest of the wonderful Design Team's creations
I look forward to seeing your RED, WHITE and BLUE projects
