Red, White, Blue and Stars

Happy Friday evening my crafty friends. I decided that I needed some craft time since my card class was canceled this evening.

My husband and I are having a cook out on Sunday and invited his Dad. So I decided to decorate the house a little with it being the Fourth of July weekend.

Fantaulous Cricut Challenge ME Monday #65 - use red, white, and blue in your project.

My Craft Spot Challenge #14 - use a star on your project.

I thought my little banner sign fit the above challenges well. What do you think? Sorry for the bad pictures. I tried to do a few close ups so that you could see more of the details.





Recipe:
All paper came from my scraps.

Perfect pearls in gold used to spritz the stars and banners. I took a Mini Mister bottle and added some of the perfect pearls to the bottle then I filled the bottle with some water and shook it up. Ta Da my own spritzer in gold pearl.

Carts used:
Plantin school bk - Stars cut at 2". Letters cut at 2 1/2" using shadow feature.

Country Life - Banners cut at 4 1/2"

Wire and ribbon from my stash - not sure what the size is. I cut the wire then wrapped it around a paint brush for the handles. I fee styled the wire on the stars.

I used my crop-a-dile to punch holes in the stars and banners then I added the grommets to the stars.

I used SU red and blue ink to dab on the banners and ink around the edges of the white stars.

Hope you all have a safe and wonderful Independence Day and weekend.
