CAS Stars and Stripes!

The new CAS challenge at the Outlawz is use stars or stripes in any way, shape or form, color or theme! I went with a classic red, white and blue combo and masked using my Slice to cut star diecuts from cardstock and inked up a cotton ball to spread the ink! I think it looks wicked cool!! I also added the pearls for the white star because you really can't see the white ink against the white cardstock, no matter how I took the photo. I am glad I did though because it added the perfect touch of embellies to this one layer card!

This is a thank you card for the amazing soldiers who have risked their lives, lost their lives, given their entire selves to create a peace for this country and all of us who live here! Please have a wonderful, safe 4th of July weekend everyone!!
