Patriotic for a Challenge!


I guess I was feeling patriotic today in making this card for the Creating Pretty Cards Challenge over at Craft Project Central! This card reminds me of a card I made a while back. It had punched out stars, leaving the Crumb Cake to show through. But I liked the idea of having the stars subtle, but with some dimension! 
  

And, I added some 'bling' with the new Silver Metallic Shapes - cute, and similar to the Rhinestone Jewels, but no faceting on the bling. I also added some Silver Metallic Thread - love the addition of a little more bling in a subtle way!

And here's the Sketch that I used -


You have until the end of July to join the challenge - Why not?! Check it out HERE. You can have a chance at winning a FREE subscription!
