Top Tip Tuesday Stars 'n Stripes Challenge

Hello and welcome here! It's time for another Top Tip Tuesday Challenge, yay, this time the Challenge is Independence Day or Stars 'n Stripes. And as you can see from my creation, I used stars and stripes, but not in the typical colours you probably imagined. Over at TTT  you'll find some great Tips from the DT, so be sure to pop by and check them out...plus you'll find more inspiration for the Challenge.

Challenge - Independence Day or Stars 'n Stripes
Tips - from the DT

Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
 I used this super cute image from Bugaboo called Theodore - Birthday Sign.  I love images that can be used for a guy or girl...I chose guy colours this time around.

 For a chance at the following prizes, be sure to link your creation to the Independence Day/Stars 'n Stripes at Top Tip Tuesday, you can enter up to 3 times!! For a chance at an extra prize leave a tip on your blog and be sure to leave 'tip' after your name in Mr. Linky.
Don't forget the challenge runs for 2 weeks

Crimson Cloud - 3 packs of die cuts

Bugaboo Stamps - 7 digi images of your choice

 I left the image a little darker so that you could see the shine and sparkle.  I used aluminum duct tape and a star punch for the corner stars (found at the local hardware store, I peeled the backing off and stuck it to cardstock before punching), and stickles for the stars along the edge of the image. I finished it off with an arrow paper clip that I found at Office Depot.
