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.

what a pretty card...I love those added stars....
Such a great combination of elements on this delightful little card. It is quite lovely! I so like the way you used the soft colors for your stars and stripes theme. Perfect!
love the extra special touch with embroidery :)
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!
