Simply Stars for the 4th

Happy 4th of July!  Any big plans for today? We have a full day of family fun planned and I can't wait!  Our neighborhood has an annual 4th of July parade where all of the kids are invited to participate.  The kids all decorate their bikes, scooters, helmets and themselves and make their way around the 3 block's something we all look forward to every year!  We'll venture to Pioneer Park later today for the big 4th of July vendor event, which is always a lot of fun.  The rest of the day will probably be spent in the pool and will wrap up with a big family BBQ and fireworks show!
To celebrate today, I made a patriotic card using the latest sketch from Fab Friday.  I pulled out my brushed silver paper for this one...I forgot how pretty it is! 
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Brushed Silver, Night of Navy, Real Red, Whisper White, Brights DSP Stack
Ink ~ Night of Navy, Real Red, VersaMark
Stamp Sets ~ Simply Stars, 123-ABC Outline and Sketch Alphabet & Numbers
Other Supplies ~ Essentials Hardware Clips, Artisan Label Punch, Silver Embossing Powder
Wishing you all a very Happy 4th of July!  Celebrate and be safe!
Happy Stamping!


  1. Love this, Breelin! I always forget about that silver card stock -- it is so pretty. Great idea to use the hardware clip on this challenge. Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday! Looking forward to meeting you next week!

  2. This is so nicely done. I really like the pairing of the silver embossing powder with the silver cardstock. Great card! Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday!

  3. Love the red, white & blue layered Artisan punch for that element of the sketch! Great patriotic card! And congrats on being an Artisan finalist! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
