OCC Challenge - Stars & Stripes Forever

Hello OCC Friends!! Please help us welcome the NEW OCC Design Team. We are super excited to announce the six NEW designers that will be joining us each week. They will be hosting some fresh ideas and challenges!! You will see a fun variety, from sketches to color combinations to project ideas - whatever the host designer can dream up! Don’t forget to subscribe to receive new challenges by email - that way you won't miss a thing!!

How would you like to win some fun goodies to start off this week’s challenge? Just upload your creation to your blog or gallery and leave us a link here in this post so we can see what you made! To be included in a random drawing for this week’s goodies, please have your card/project linked here by 12 noon on Friday, September 11th. The winner will be announced next Saturday, September 12th

This months challenges are hosted by Dana Grothaus. Dana thought it would be fitting to have a challenge using Stars & Stripes. Your card can be patriotic if you like, but it's not necessary. Just so you include both stars and stripes in your design. Have fun and we can't wait to see what you create!!

Remember there is never a time limit on our challenges - feel free to participate whenever you are able. To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then include a link to Mr. Linky form at the bottom of this post so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC

Here is Dana's card to start us off: Dana's Dabbling Studio.
