Craftin' Desert Divas Anything Goes & BBTB2 Stars & Stripes

Our Sponsors:
$5 Gift Certificate

One Stamp Set

$30 Gift Certificate

My Project:

There is also a challenge starting over at BBTB2
Bitten by the Bug 2
Our lovely Brenda has chosen the theme
Stars & Stripes!
Let's see a patriotic project in honor of our Soldiers and 9-11
using stars and stripes.

So for my card, I used the Summer Celebrations cartridge.
This is a fabulous flag image - LOVE it!
I cut it out at 4".

The stars and stripes embossing folders I used for the mats are
both from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby).

I hand cut the banner tag and added some brads.
The embellishments at the top are from
Close To My Heart (Skylark).

I LOVE the stamp set "Simply Said" from
And I thought this sentiment would be perfect for
a patriotic card, to honor one of our amazing
service men or women.

So I hope that you will join us over at 
Craftin' Desert Divas for the Anything Goes Linky Party
and BBTB2 for our Stars & Stripes challenge.

Thanks for checkin' in!
