Stars and strips!

Hey Everyone! I hope that you are all having a beautiful morning. It is a wonderful morning here in NC, we had some bad storms last night. I love thunderstorms, and watching the lightening so it was wonderful for me. but my dogs not so much; God saw us through them and now the birds are out singing and the sky is blue. I wanted to share a card that I have made for a few challenges. I will list them below!
Here's my card:



for my card, I cut the star from Potpourri Basket @ 2 1/2". The America is cut from beyond Birthdays@ 1" I also cut the shadow layer for it.  I added light blue ribbon and metal stars that have to be heated to stick. They are not for the I-Rock but some off brand from Walmart. ( * i used my hot glue gun tip to set them, no glue was in the gun, I just left it on them for a few seconds a BAM they were set, just like the I- Rock)
I used the Swiss dots folder on the red back ground and the Star paper is from Paper Studio open stock @ Hobby lobby.

I had so much fun making this card, it just seemed to come together, I had no idea what I wanted to do when I started.

  3. What a fabulous card! I adore the paper and your floating stars. The embossing is great as is the ribbon. Really like how you offset the word America on that bottom right corner. It looks terrific. The card came together nicely.
