Stars & Stripes at the International Art & Soul Challenge

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge our challenge is Stars &/or Stripes.

The star-shaped shaker was made with a Tonic Studios set. I filled it with multicolored stars & a gorgeous sequin mix from Spiegelmom Scraps that I recently won from Stick It Down. I wasn't sure how much I would use her sequin mixes, but I'm hooked! They are so great for filling shaker cards and you receive a good amount.

I hand-cut a star from a striped paper, and traced it onto several colors of paper. After cutting the papers, I used a star-patterned embossing folder on half of each. The background is a glittery black Core'Dinations cardstock, and I heat-embossed some stars from the same stamp set as the sentiment. I admit there's a pretty heavy The More You Know vibe, but I like it!
