Red, White, Blue & a Thank You!!

Hi Ya!  Saturday morning and time for a new Less is More challenge, but first I must take care of a few thank yous.  The first Thank You goes to Chrissie and Mandi, the creators of the Less is More challenge, for picking me as their challenge winner for the month of July!!  What an honor!!!  Thanks so much ladies... your challenges are brilliant and I can't image what my Saturdays would be without a little Less is More!!  And now a very big thank you to all my fellow LIMettes (and you know who you are!!) for all the lovely comments you leave me week after week!  Ladies you all totally ROCK!!



Now... on to my card.  This week Chrissie and Mandi have challenged us to use the colors from our country's flag and since I live in the USA that means the "Star Spangled Banner".   When I thought about what I would do I knew I had no choice but to make a card using stars.  And so here is my little card for today.  The star is from the Hero Arts set, Galaxy of Stars and the sentiment is from Waltzingmouse.  Since the star is full of the word star I decided to make a it a "congrats" card.  I think it would be a good graduation card.   I also including a photo of the flag as requested by Chrissie and Mandi.

Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & SU! Night of Navy; PTI Bitty Star Basics Pure Poppy; Stamps:  Hero Arts & WMS; Ink:  SU! Night of Navy & Riding Hood Red

Wonderful Rosemary!
This is a fabulous interpretation... so often R W B cards can look rather contrived... but this is fabulous!
Thanks so much for including a pic of your flag!
