Stars & Stripes for Belli # 68


Today's Belli Challenge is to create a card with a Patriotic theme. This is an interpretation of the American flag using a backgound of deep red with raised silver stars & dots. The stripes are cut from strips of antique looking Early American style paper, blue paper with white dots, a star punched from Natural SU card stock and a red button for accent. The button and star punch are SU. No stamps or ink were used to make this card. A friend supplied the patterned paper, the maker unknown to me.
