SOS Challenge #57 - Stars & Stripes OR Red/White/Blue

You have a couple of choices if you wish to play along with our challenge this week over at Shopping our Stash (SOS) Challenge Blog!  For Challenge #57 we want to see Stars & Stripes or Red/White/Blue.  You could do both options like some of our DT girls.  Me....I kept it simple and just went with stars and stripes.  It's been a crazy few days and I needed to keep it nice & simple but I did use up lots of stash on my card:
I knew that I wanted to use my neglected star embossing folder with my Cuttlebug (best invention ever in my opinion) and I paired it with more paper from a My Minds Eye "Complete Boy" paper pad.  I used another neglected item (my fiskars border punch) and even found an ancient rub on which sentiment worked perfectly with all those stars.  I think my arm just about fell off trying to get this rub-on to transfer.  I have tons of rub-ons and rarely use them so I better start giving my arms a good workout as I swear they get harder to transfer as they age, LOL!  Other stash items used:  twine & some of my Tim Holtz distress inks.  Did I mention I have a whole drawer full of just the ink refills that rarely see the light of day?  I really need to work on using them more........

Hope you play along with us again this week over at SOS!

I love your non-traditional take on Stars & Stripes, Crystal. I agree, embossing folders are wonderful and add so much dimension.

i ♥LOVE♥ this one... i love the colors, especially, but really the entire card is FAB. who knew coral, grey and kraft would SO TOTALLY ROCK??!?! (well, ok, clearly YOU did!!!) :) :) :)

ps: i agree that rub ons DO seem to get dryer and harder to use as they age; and the cheaper the product the worse/more quickly that happens. EAD and basic grey seem to be the exceptions... i don't think i've ever had one that's not PERFECT!

pss: those DI refills make AMAZING custom mist colors when you mix them in the little sprayer bottles!!! ♥

CAS and fabulous! LOVE that embossing folder (I also have the "Bug" and wouldn't trade for it) and the stripe background paper too. Fabulous card.

Too cute. I think I purged most of my rub ons a few months back.. okay maybe a year but I wish I had kept some!
