Kristi's Challenge

My Blogging group has a regular challenge-this week was Kristi's turn to host-her challenge was to alter something-and make a holiday theme.  Since I need instant gratification I had to pick the next closest holiday and That was Memorial Day-will also be good for Independence day!  I altered 7 4x4 coasters covering them with real red and brocade blue DSP from some hostess packs I had left from last year, I cut the letters on my Cricut with the Mickey Mouse Font cartridge, the stars are from the Simon Upper Chipboard Letters from SU!  I inked them with Whisper White craft Ink and heat set Iridescent Ice embossing powder over the craft ink.  The blue ribbon is some old stuff from my scrap stash-non-SU!  and the striped gross-grain is SU!  I used the mat pack to help me place the holes and punched them with the crop-a-dile.  Everything is adhered with SU! glue stick except for the chipboard for that I used our Tombo multipurpose adhesive.  I drew in the little stitching lines with SU!'s white gel pen.
