Let's Celebrate Paper Players Challenge PP548

 July 4, 2021

Happy Birthday to AMERICA!!!!!!!  I hope you have something fun planned today.  My family will be here for a cook-out and pool time!  

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!  I am also entering my card is the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

The amazing Anne Marie is our hostess this week.  She has a very timely theme challenge for all of us.  Stars and/or Stripes.  Have fun and we can't wait to see what you create!  

My card is created on a 5 X 5 white card base.  I cut a blue square and a plaid square for my center.  The plaid brings in my stripes.  I added stars cut with dies using red and blue paper and layered them.  Enamel shiny dots were added in the center of the stars and between the shooting stars.  The sentiment is stamped in red using the Sunny Studios Stars and Stripes stamp set. 

  1. Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
  2. Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.

  1. What a fabulously patriotic creation Claire - love that plaid and the stars that grow across the card. Happy 4th to you - enjoy the celebrations!

  2. Awesome!! love the plaid and fun stars. Happy 4th!

  3. What a great way to use that sketch...your stars remind me of fireworks...up, up and away!

  4. Clarie, You pretty much nailed the patriotic theme for sure. I really love square cards and I especially love the way the stars get larger as they go. Have a great week!

  5. I really like those graduated star sizes and the way you layered them all over the plaid! A great design with a perfect patriotic flair, and I love the decorated envelope too!

  6. Your red stars just pop off the plaid paper. Claire, your stars are placed so perfectly they look as though they're floating up to the sky. Love this. Hope you're enjoying your week.

  7. I love all those multi-layered stars! They look brilliant shooting up over the fun plaid paper! Perfect for celebrating! Hope you have fun plans for the weekend!

  8. I love how those layered stars look like they are shooting into the sky! Such a fun and festive card to celebrate the 4th. That plaid paper is the perfect touch, too. Hope you had a great holiday with the fam and thanks for rocking my challenge this week!

  9. Very fun card. Love the way the stars are layered and how you positioned them on the card.
