Shopping Our Stash #108

Hello friends!  It's time for another great challenge at Shopping Our Stash!  This week we want to see your Red, White and Blue creations or something created with your country's flag colors.  I'm sure where ever you are from your are patriotic and love to use your country's colors, I know I do.

My card is another simple one.  No colored images lately, although I am starting to miss coloring.  Maybe I will break out my pencils in the not so distant future!
 I dug into my scrap box for the red, white and blue rectangles.  I embossed them with a star folder then inked them with TH Vintage Photo ink.  The red fiber I purchased last fall thinking I would use it on something Christmas-y and it never happened.  Same thing with those cute, glittery stars.  I added "Happy Birthday" since this card is for my aunt whose birthday is today!
 The inside is a bit different for me.  I didn't do all 4 sides and I didn't follow the same sketch for the writing panel.  Shocker!  However, I haven't used this great scroll stamp in a long time and my fingers were itching to ink it up.
Here you can see just how glittery the stars are!  I really like them!

Now that you have seen what I have done it's your turn.  Dig deep (or not so deep) into your stash and join us for this fun challenge this week!

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs,
