Star Spangled Card

Here is my card for the Jitterbuggin' Challenge sketch this week. Believe it or not, this is the first patriotic card I've made. We are usually on vacation, and I suppose I'm too busy to scrap. Hmmm....won't be the last....it was fun! George stars and circles, Autumn leaves stamps, and scrap paper. Lots of Cat's Eye Chestnut Roan ink......little ribbon and raffia. Stars are embossed with the twigs folder and layered with a button. This is for Fantabulous Cricut. MySheriCrafts, Cricut Cardz Challenge, Papercraft Star, Cuttlebug Blog, and Cuttlebug Spot too.

I love this card!!!! I never have made a patriotic card either. Probably the same reasons, too.

If I could dream up the perfect card, this would be it! Thanks for sharing it!
