Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party #8

Welcome to another Craftin Desert Divas Linky Party!!

This weeks theme is Red, White & Blue.

Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party here. I will designate a theme and invite you to share projects you've made!!

I created this paper lantern for our Red, White & Blue challenge. The adorable owl is from KaDoodle Bug Designs Patriotic Owl set. The lantern is from SVG Cutting files. I did use Peachy Keen large Critter Faces Set for the eyes. Added some ribbon and bakers twine to complete it. Embossing Folder is Tiny Stars by The Paper Studio and sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps Fun Celebrations.

Don't forget KaDoodle Bug Designs is also having an Anything Goes challenge on their Fan Page HERE! Winner gets a file of their choice. You must use a KBD file on your project.
