Stars for the 4th!!

Hi there! I hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend! This week we had the challenge of making a card for the 4th of July using only Stars and no stripes! I loved this idea! I made my card with my friend Katie during our Monthly Scrap nights! We had a lot of fun making it!

Here it is:

I used George and the Basic shapes to cut out the red and blue stars! The blue stars are cut at 2.02 inches and the red stars are cut at 1.94 inches. We added a Peachy Keen Princess face stamp and white stitching around the edges. The stars are popped up on the firework pattern paper punched with a Martha Stewart Border punch. The firework paper is layered on a red piece of cardstock on a blue piece of cardstock! I added white stitching around the blue edge to match the stars. The sentiment is from Pink By Design!

Be sure to check back for more 4th of July inspiration on the Sweet Sassy Diva Blog as well as my facebook fan page!
