Stars & Stripes For Christmas

With the upcoming Independence Day celebration in the United States, we're creating holiday cards that feature STARS and/or STRIPES on our card designs this week (they do not need to be red, white or blue - although that's okay too) ... just STARS or STRIPES (or both) in any medium you choose.

Here is what we created this week:

Stephanie says, "My card started with the epitome of stripes for the holiday - that cute heart made of Candy Canes on the journaling card from the Merry and Bright Collection by Mintay Papers.  The star paper on the background and wonderful burlap paper are both from the same collection.  I added some vintage BasicGrey Evergreen papers together with a striped border from Authentique and then finished with some holly bling and a tiny sentiment from Flora & Fauna Bottlebrush Snow Globe Set using the layout from this week's Sketch Saturday."

Lauren says, "I combined stripes (and bunnies and text) from Lawn Fawn's Snow Day Remix with stars from My Mind's Eye's Merry and Bright; then added some glittery foam stars and an Eyelet Outlet Candy Cane Brad. I couldn't resist using my older Mitten Brads even though they're out of stock; and I gave the bunnies Santa Hats because... well, just because I could, lol! And yes, I also used this week's Sketch Saturday, though I rotated it and rearranged it a bit, so they may disqualify me, though I thank them for the inspiration!"

Link up your own Starry and/or Striped Masterpiece right here, by 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, July 14th. Keyword for galleries and Flickr is JB-21-14.
