Stars and Stripes are Hopping today

Howdy All! It is time for the Bombshell Blog Hop and it is Stars and Stripes time!  You should have arrived from the Kompletely Kool site of Kim! If not, then why not start at the beginning over at the Bombshell Blog?  I went for a bit of a retro feel with my stars. 

I used stars from Bucking Bronco stamps and the Happy Birthday from the Banner Sayings stamp set. 

I picked the lime green and turquoise colors along with brown to make it a bit of a 70's wallpaper feel. (BG000,01, 02, 07; YG01,03, 05, 07, E37, 39). I colored each star and then I cut them out and went around the edge with my black Copic. This allows me to raise it and you not to see the edges as white. I added some sparkly twine for the stars to dangle and popped up bot the stars and the banner. I finished it up with the stripes from my stars and stripes. I think this works for a masculine birthday card. :-)

OK. so hop away - - check out the rest of the hop starting with Angie! and have a great rest of the week. The compete list is below!
