Pals Paper Arts challenge 162, Patriotic Card




Happy 4th of July,  our Independence Day in the United States.  I will be off to the traditional BBQ
and I hope you all have plans to enjoy and reflect on this day as well. Our country deserves to be celebrated.

So, for todays PPA Challenge here are the colors we had to work with, very timely of course.





We (especially hubby) are huge lovers of all things patriotic, so I do hope you enjoy my card.
I used the Stripes embossing folder, it was perfect for this, I spritzed it with some red, then inked up my brayer and ran it across the top after embossing. 
I cut out the blue and distressed the edges some, stamped and cut out the star from Simply Stars.

Got out the Celebrate from Best of Birthdays for the sentiment.  I used the Crumb Cake to dirty up the sentiment a bit and attached, added a Candy Dot on each end of my little flag.

Cut 3 stars and used Stampin Dimentionals to attach them.  It was a fun card, and not difficult at all.

The item # on Best of Birthdays is 132929 clear Mount. The best of sets are available until March of 2014, but are not in the catalog, you'll find a separate flyer for them.  One comes out each month, all are $14.95




And here is the Simply Stars, I got this from SU free during a Regional and really didn't think I would use it much, but much to my surprise, I am bring it out all the time. So many uses, and it'll come in handy for Christmas as well.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed what you saw. I would love to hear what you think.
