Bloggers Challenge 158


This week's Bloggers Challenge theme is patriotic. I really enjoyed creating this card. The stripes are cut and attached to a backer sheet run through the Xyron. The sheet was embossed in the stars Cuttlebug folder and the stars were highlighted in silver Brilliance ink. The image is from the Artistic Outpost stamp sheet She-roes. The image is painted with Creative Inspirations paints. "Freedom" is stencilled from a Club Scrap stencil. Happy 4th of July everyone.
