More Red, White, and Blue

We have a new challenge starting today at Shopping Our Stash.....and the theme is Stars and Stripes or Red, White, and Blue!!  Be sure and check out the challenge blog for all the details and see all the wonderful inspiration from the Design Team. 


I went with the red, white, and blue part of the challenge theme - but then added several stars too.  I'm really not sure if this design is something I thought up in my own head (surely NOT - but maybe!  LOL!) or if it's a CASE of a card I saw somewhere.  If it's a CASE and it was your card, please let me know so I can give credit.  I used three different scraps of DP and then the stars were cut out in Kraft and run through a Crimper.   I popped up the two larger stars and then wrapped some Baker's Twine around them.  Another easy mailer!

My post for {Pin}spirational Challenges will be up in a few minutes........Another great inspiration photo!

Thanks for stopping by.......and be sure and check out the Shopping Our Stash challenge.

Lynn, Terrific card. I wish I could say you CASED it from me, but that is not the case. You probably came up with this one on your own. In any case, I love it. The different papers against the white and then the craft added to it have an awesome look. Nice touch with the twine. Have a fun day.

i ♥LOVE♥ this! i love the perfect simplicity of the design... the twine wrapped stars... the choice of papers... and actually i WAS going to ask you if it was a sketch or HOW you thought up the placement (which is brilliantly balanced without being symmetrical... i LOVE that!) so i had to chuckle that you aren't sure--nice to know i'm not the ONLY one who does that occasionally! :) :) :)
