With Memorial Day fast approaching, The Shabby Tea Room's latest challenge is "Stars and Stripes".
We are to use red, white, and blue and/or stars and stripes. Since I just used some striped paper from Webster's Pages Petite Papers for my last posted card, I knew exactly the paper I wanted to use for this card.
I found the image for the focal point at Vintage Holiday Crafts. The focal point is attached to the Webster's Pages papers. (Two cards in a row using these beautiful papers--does that mean my hoarding of them has officially ended?) I separated the two patterned papers with a scalloped border of Enchanted Evening. I used a running stitch to gather and ruffle the gingham ribbon. I cut two stars in Pure Poppy using my Cricut, glued them together, and coated with garnet glitter.After adding the flower and star, a little more weight was needed at the bottom, so I added the buttons to the bottom stars and then for more balance added the third button to the glittered star. The card front is attached to a base of Aqua Mist to pick up the aqua background of the focal point.
