Simpy Crafts Challenge June 2012

The gals over at Simply Crafts have another great challenge using the ROUNDED STAR cut from the Baby Steps cartridge.

I don't have the Baby Steps cartridge, I'm having to cut my STARs from the Doodle Charms cartridge.    For my card, I'm using the new Acrylic Distressed look I just learned for my back ground.  

I used my scorer to put lines on white card stock then painted it red and let dry.  When done drying I used a coarse nail file and laid it flat and began moving it back and forth taking the paint off the raised lines.

Well you guessed it, another Patriotic card - with Stars as the challenge why not make a Happy 4th card.  Rockets Red Glare...and  I just noticed even the end of the rocket has a star!    The rocket is cut from the Sweet Treats cartridge.

I used some loose letters for my sentiment at the bottom of the card stamped in red.  I pop dotted the red layer on the rocket and also all three stars.

I dotted Red White & Blue glitter glue on each corner.   I wish this picture would come out a little better, the white stars are on white shimmery paper and really stand out.

I hope you enjoyed my post for today and my entry into the Simply Crafts challenge. 
Chao for now! --C
