Stars and/or Stripes for Seize the Birthday

Happy Thursday everyone.  It is time for another Seize the Birthday challenge and since tomorrow is July 4th, our topping this week is "Stars and/or Stripes".  Remember it is only an option and you can make a regular birthday project if you wish.   Here is my card:
I used the Viva la Verve June  Wk 3 sketch.
And as you can see, I used both stars (stamped and punched) and stripes (in the patterned paper and one of the stamped stars).  The DSP is from the new SU All Abloom stack and the CS is SU Strawberry Slush, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.  I used Verve's Seeing Stars and Chevron Love for the sentiment stamped in Strawberry Slush ink.  The stars are stamped in Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush and Pistachio Pudding inks.  I added some Baker's Twine around the sentiment banner.  The banner is cut with MFT Fishtail Flags and Fishtail Flags Layers die-namics. The stars and sentiment are mounted with foam dimensionals.

Now you need to check out all the fabulous creations by my teammates over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you can play along with us, can't wait to see all your  creations.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
