Stars and Stripes

Morning all.  We have a lovely new challenge for you this morning over at Make My Monday. We would like to see 'Stars and/or Stripes' on your creations this week.  Stipes!  Now there's an excuse to use up some of those endless scraps of paper that I just can't bring myself to throw away.  And, believe me, I don't seem to have made a dint in the stash.  I backed a piece of card with double sided sticky tape and cut strips of co-ordinating papers before randomly adding them to the tape.  Once I'd completed the panel I trimmed it down to fit a card blank.  I then took another piece of white card and die cut a few star shaped apertures.  I added one to the other and then used a sentiment strip and a few gems to finish it off.

I found this so therapeutic to do.  If I wasn't running out of double sided sticky tape I would have made many more of these.  Oh well, my stash of scraps isn't going anywhere.

Please pop over to see the lovely inspiration created by the design team and whilst you are there you can join in the fun.

Thanks for reading.
