The Paper Players Go Red, White, & Blue

Hey stampy friends!  Are you ready for a new Paper Players challenge?  I hope so because here it is!

When I saw these colors, the first place my brain went was patriotic and for once I went with my first impulse.  Here's what I made:

Whipper Snapper's Liberty Eagle is a fairly new acquisition in my craft room.  In addition to the challenge colors, I added Cinnamon Cider (neutrals are okay), lots of silver sparkle, and just a bit of Mango Melody for his beak.  I think this card will have to go in a package or be hand delivered though; both the Pacific Point starry circle and Sam (of course his name is Sam) are up on Dimensionals.  And it doesn't show up in the picture, but I put a bit of Wink of Stella on all the stars on the main image.  Just because I could.

I used the Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch:

It's a good one!  Hope you'll give these colors a whirl (stars and stripes not required, but they are fun) and post your creation over at the Paper Players blog!
