Stars and or Stripes

IMG_0012

Hello Friends,

With Fourth of July weekend right around the corner the ladies and I

over at Seize the Birthday have a “Toppings” option that fits the occasion.

STB Toppings

You don’t have to stick to the traditional Red, White and Blue like I did,

just incorporate Stars and or Stripes in your card!

And remember over at STB the “Topping” is and Option and not a requirement!

You just have to stick to the Birthday Theme!

I also, have a brand new Challenge site that one of my

friends and fellow Just Us Girls teammates has started and it’s called…

Mixed Media Mojo!

I just so happened to have been dabbling in MM this week so it worked out

perfectly when I heard all about it!  Don’t you love when that happens!

They also have a Patriotic theme going on!

Best of Luck Maria…on your new Challenge Site!

Here are a couple more shots of my card so that you can see the details.

My new favorite thing is Embossing paste!  Soooo Fun!!  

I have two layers on my flag.

It’s so much fun going through my stencils and using them again!

I got a little carried away with my Ranger Rick Red Ink spritz,

but what ya gonna do..I am still learning!  I guess I have a heavy finger! LOL

I soooo wish I would have taken step by step shots of this card..because it had many steps.

I even took my stencil and layed it back on my card to color in the

stars they have paste under them as well.

The Silver DP at the bottom I loved, but thought it needed a couple of red and blue

stars on it to tie it all in together.  Luckily I have a small star hole punch!

The sentiment is from Verve!

I have a girlfriend who has a Fourth of July Birthday…and I sure hope she likes her card!

Now, I have linked up both sites for you to go and check out!

I hope to see you over at STB this time!  

You wouldn’t believe what my talented team did

with the Topping this week!

Take care and Happy 4th!
