Hello! It's once again time for another great challenge over at Card Crafter's Circle.  This week it's all about stars and stripes (not necessarily patriotic).  It's not that I'm not patriotic, but I just decided to go with the basics.  I have used this wonderful star floral heart from MelJen's and coloured it with markers to help it stand out a bit more. I cut this out and matted it to some blue textured cardstock and for an added touch embroidered some added vines on it.  I popped this up over my Stripes and block papers from my stash which are matted to green cardstock.  For a final touch I added some star brads.  They were silver so I coloured them red with my permanent marker and dabbed a bit off for a slightly distressed look.  So voila....this is what I made.  Here's a close up of the embroidery.
I hope you'll come join in the fun!  If you need a bit more incentive..... this week we are being sponsored by the amazing MelJen's Stamps and they are offering the winner 4 wonderful images!
If that's still not enough incentive.....they go HERE to check out the Design Teams creations.  This will surely inspire you! See you soon!

I love the green matting and it's such a great idea to change the colour of the brads to suit your card, excellent tip!!! Love your embroidery such a personal touch for the lucky person who gets this card!
