VSCSTAR - Happy Independence Day



Happy Day!!!

Julee Tilman the owner of *Verse Visual* is a new Forum Member over on SCS - WAHOOOO -I'm so excited to see her Company there and I'm so thrilled that she is hosting this wonderful *Star* Challenge. You can see all the details right here.

In honor of Independence Day tomorrow I thought I'd make a *patriotic* card and participate in Julee's Challenge.

I really liked the Sketch Challenge #183 from yesterday and I have used it again for this card.
I've started out with Whisper White as my base. Next I have added the smaller Brilliant Blue CS and then layered it with Real Red.

I have dug out this old CTMH Set called *Let Freedom Ring* and started stamping the *Independence* sentiment on the right hand side of the Real Red CS with the same color Ink plus I've pierced right below it.

Next I have stamped the main image in Real Red then layered it with Brilliant Blue, Real Read and Whisper White. The WW CS was pierced all around. This whole section was raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

The *Star's* were punched out with the SU Star Punches. The smaller Star's were also raised with Stamping Dimensionals after I've added these fun *Star Brad's*.

Hope you like it??? ~TFL~

HAVE A WONDERFUL AND SAFE INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!
