And a happy Fourth to you!

Happy Fourth of July Weekend!!
Today's Stamp Simply challenge is Star Light, Star Bright- Focus on incorporating stars into our projects! Make sure to head on over to Sharon's blog and check out her sample!

My interpretation is sort of a stretch...but it does have a star! ;)

I used the Spellbinders™ deckled edge oval as my white focal point-The flag and sentiment are from an Unity store kit. I colored my flag in with copics and topped the sentiment off with some Kaiser gems.

Make sure to upload using SCS Keyword is ssnotime146.

I love to see Fourth of July cards that aren't over the top, that are CAS and too the point of really what the Fourth is about, and this card is no exception. Absolutely great.
