Fourth of July Card

Hello Everybody!

This card placed in the TOP 5 at Inkspirational!

Tonight I made a card for the Fourth of July.  Here's my card:

I am submitting it into the following challenges:

Inkspirational Challenge #25-CASE this:

Cut It Up Challenge #21: Red, White, and Blue and Use a Die Cut-I used my Cricut to cut the stars (good ol' George Cartridge)

I used a paisley embossing folder for the top of my card.  I made red and blue stars using my Cricut.  The shiny stars in the middles are from Scrap Yard 329.  I don't know if they are still around anymore.  They made shiny light weight metal embellishments which of course I still seem to have.  LOL!  I remember buying them at the Scrapbook Expo like 8 years ago and thinking this is the best thing ever.  Back then they were though but I must have been afraid to use them.  I need to remedy that! 

Oh and I wanted to share that I love this CASEed card.  I will probably be using it again.  :) 

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...what old old old stash do you have?

I love your take on the CASEd card. The red and blue really pop off that white, and I like how you alternated the colors. Thanks for joining us at Cut it Up Challenges!
