ODBDSLC15 - Stars & Stripes!

The current Our Daily Bread Shining the Light (15) challenge is to use stars and/or stripes on your card.  I decided to use both.  One of my current favorite paper packs is DCWV's Linen Closet mat stack.  It is full of beautiful papers in all kinds of patterns, including stripes!  I had some acrylic stars that I could never figure out what to do with and so I painted one with Ranger's Cloudy Blue paint dabber and let it dry.  I recently got some crocheted ribbon from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and used that on the card.  If you have never visited Sharon's store you need to and right away.  She has some of the yummiest ribbons out there.

The border punch is from EKSuccess and one of my favorite.  I added a couple of PTI vintage buttons.  The sentiment is from the ODBD set Friendship. After the star had dried I added it to the center of the bow with  Liquid Glass.
Thanks for taking a peek!

What a sweet card! I really like that crocheted ribbon and that you put buttons at the pull up spot on the blue paper, making the punched edge look like a banner or draped fabric! :>
