Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge

Holy Moly ... where is the time going?????????

Can you believe it's time for another challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters?  Well it is and we are hoping you'll come join in the fun.  Today Lisa B is your hostess and she has asked us to create with this theme in mind:  STARS and STRIPES!

I must admit time got away from me and I was QUICK to create for this challenge.  So, here's what I came up with  . . .

Yes, I know, they are very similar and there's a good reason for that . . . they were both created by using design paper from the Webster's Pages 'Postcards from Paris & Sweet as Cherry Pie' petite papers!

On the 1st one the only thing I added was a strip of red satin ribbon to cover the seam from the strip of paper I cut from the edge of the second card and the sentiment on both cards were STICKERS that came on a sheet of address labels from 'Save The Children' where we send donations.  I simply matted and/or distressed them before adding them to the front of my cards.  (Hey, I didn't want to throw them away!!)

Other than the sentiment, the only other addition to this card are the stars which were punched using a Creative Memories star punch and were actually punched for a different project but never used!  They were just 'laying there' so you know I had to pop them on the front of this card ... PERFECT!

Here are a few additional challenges I'd like to enter into:
