Oh My Stars and Stripes!

Hello friends!
Happy Monday and happy Summer too!
Nothing says "Summer" like July 4th, right?!  Well, since I don't really have a need to make 4th of July cards, I decided to do another patriotic "Any Hero" card to send to OWH.  I really need to get some cards made for that and this helps with the mission! :)

I pulled out some of my fave stuff to play with which is Lawn Fawn of course!
So I thought it would be fun to take the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card die set and try to come up with a flag type design.  So I die cut the stitched journal with blue card stock and then took the line of stars die and cut out three rows of stars in the middle of it.
Behind it, I took some silver glimmer paper and then layered it onto a piece of red card stock.  I die cut the banner from the die set and then stamped the sentiment in red from the So Much to Say stamp set from Lawn Fawn.

I also tied some Lawn Fawn Trimmings Silver Sparkle Single Cord around the star panel before I popped it up over the red striped paper.  I thought it needed an extra touch, so I took three of the blue stars from the negative of the die and attached them to the bottom corner of the card.
Simple, patriotic and effective is what I like here! :)

Thanks for stopping by today!  I appreciate you being here!!
Be sure to come back again Tuesday evening for a new challenge post!
