The making of a cactus flag!

Last week I took a pic of the "stars" part of my Stars and Stripes series! Below is that pic:

Then for my "stripes" I decided to use a stem of my Huernia plant!

My daughter put them together for me using Photoshop:

Then we added color:

Since I couldn't get it to wave...I swirled it and it turned into this funky cactus flag! I like it...now if I can get it into my blog title, I will be happy!!!

Happy Cactus Monday!
