WHIFF OF JOY CHALLENGE - STARS AND STRIPES

woj-oakley-scooter-1

This weeks Whiff of Joy challenge is a theme - stars and stripes. At first I was flummoxed (easy for me I know but there you go lol) as I've never made a "stars and stripes" themed card before. Thank goodness for good old Basic Grey - this card could not be more further from the stereotypical stars and stripes theme but it has stars ..... and it has stripes (okay so it has some circles too lol).

I've made this card for our Ben's 4th birthday towards the end of May, he just loves his "skooootah" so this card will really appeal to him. A few Sizzix stars and a few spare buttons and the card was done. Another view of the card.

The inside - same old same old I'm afraid, the layout on the front I've carried through to the inside.

Recipe:
Stamps: Whiff of Joy Oakley with Scooter, sentiments are from the Birthdays set of Scrappy Cat stamps from Hobbycraft
Papers: Basic Grey Granola
Tools: Martha Stewart Zigzag border punch, Sizzix stars die, Tim Holtz distressing tool
Embellies: Not much this time - a few buttons from my button box and a piece of Anita’s ribbon.


Thanks for looking,
