Stamptacular Sunday DT ~ Stars and Stripes

That's right my bloggy friends, it's SUNDAY again! And that means another challenge over at my fav challenge blog!! Stamptacular Sunday!!! This week the challenge is to celebrate our neighbors in the US's Independance Day and use Stars and Stripes on our cards. Now, you all know I love ya...but.... Im Canadian and just can't do the big red white and blue thang! So... The rules for this challenge are to just use stars and stripes...no matter the colour! (and of course... you must STAMP on your project!) Allrighty then... onto my card.

My card front...it actually turned out allright... I stressed about this one! but then...Im sure you hear that from me alot! LOL But really...somedays it really is like giving birth! Especially when Im making the card for someone special. And this one was for a special friend undergoing a big surgery. I wanted to make her something to try to cheer her up and help her feel abit better. And well, what better way then with pink and pretty bras! LOL These stamps are from my fav Skipping Stones Design The stamps are always so perfect as they almost always match my smart ass sence of humour. :o) it's hard to see how sparkly that bra is. But I stamped it in bright pink, then coloured in the lines with my Spica pen, and then bling'd er up with some glossy accents! She sparkles man! And Im not sure if you can tell but in the paper behind the image I actually embossed with my CB folder some stars... but hard to see unless you look for them. OK...Im rambling... the inside:

Viola, there she is. Im actually pretty happy with how it turned out. The papers I've used are from My Minds Eye (stripes) and Basic Grey. I hope you like and that you all can join us over at STamptacular this week!!
Cheers!
