Operation Write Home MIdweek Throwdown Challenge


We have a new Midweek Throwdown color challenge starting today at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps!  We're being challenged to work with Kraft cardstock and any other colors we'd like to put with it.  I love kraft card stock with red, white & Blue so that's what I did for my card today.

I saw this layout at my friend Carol's blog last month and had to try it.  It wasn't easy but I got it and mass produced several of these using different 6 X 6 paper pads I'll show you another time.  

The sentiment is made by Verve, I'm not sure if it was in a set or was a single.  I stamped it in Stampin' Up! Night of Navy ink and cut it out with Spellbinders circles.  I also used a Spellbinders circle to cut the half circle.  The stars embossing folder is made by The Paper Studio and came from Hobby Lobby.  

Thanks for visiting my blog today -

These colors together are so striking! Thanks for the shout-out - I made a permanent template so I can make more too! This turned out great, and I REALLY love that embossing on the kraft!

This is great, I never thought to put the starburst on the bottom but it looks awesome!
