Simon Says Stamp Challenge...Stars and Stripes...Friends Forever!


Good morning stampin' friends! I hope you all had a great weekend and for my crafty Canadian friends, out there, I hope you enjoyed the extra sleep in yesterday, as much as I did!  So, today I am sharing the card I made for this week's new challenge that we have over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog. This week the challenge is Stars and lets see some Stars and Stripes on your card or creation in some way!!!

For my card this week I have used For the Record Echo Park 12x12 Papers and this sweet or should I say "tweet", Pure Innocence stamp by My favorite Things called You're So Tweet! I coloured the image with my Copic Markers and paper pieced her dress with the Echo Park papers. I inked all the edges of the paper and the die cuts with my new favourite ink Powder Puff chalk ink in Amaretto. I cut the image out with my Oval Nesties and then left the image in the die and inked with Old Paper Distress ink. I cut a mat with the scalloped Oval Nestie from black cardstock and adhered the image with dimensional adhesive. I cut a border from white cardstock using the My Favorite Things Dizzy Border Die-namics Die and I cut all the stars on my card with my QuicKutz dies but you can get the same look with the fabulous Stacking Stars Die-namics set too. I stamped a sentiment from another one of the Pure Innocence stamp sets called A Cart Full of Friends on the tag and hung it from the knotted ribbon and finally I added a little red bling here and there to finish off the card.   
Here is the inside of my card....I stamped the PI Girlie again and used one of the sentiments that comes in the You're So Tweet stamp set

Well, thanks so for stopping by today and having a wee peek at my card! Make sure to swing on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog and check out all the gorgeous cards by the Simon Says DT....then join us! We can't wait to see your gorgeous Stars and Stripes creations!

I love her black spotted dress & those shiny red shoes. The black ribbon is delightful in the way it picks up on the white spots & I really like those bordered/layeres stars. I always look forward to seeing what you do with the PI stamps.
