Patriotic Stars for Sunday Stamps

It's time for a new sketch at Sunday Stamps and this week I went patriotic, as that's the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the stars.

Now, I'm a very literal person so when I see a sketch with certain shapes I almost never change it up, it's just one of my weird little quirks. When I saw the stars the American flag came to mind and the card came together pretty quickly after that.

I used SU Star framelits and cut 3, just like the sketch, to go down the right side of the card. Because my main layer was white I decided to do 2 small blue stars and make the the larger one in the middle red. The sentiment is one of my favorite quotes and is from a set that retired from SU last year. It's one I'll always use though, patriotic cards are always something I need in my stash. To try and mimic the look of stripes I used a a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us! Feel free to change the star shapes to anything you want!
