The Paper Girls Challenge #203 - Stars and Stripes

Hello again! I am back with my second project of the day. If you are looking for my Counterfeit Kit Challenge Mini Kit reveal, please scroll on down.

It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Girls Challenge Blog today. I am your hostess for this challenge and since we just celebrated Independence Day I thought it would be fun to include some stars and stripes on your projects. They do not have to be patriotic, in fact, the card I created is not - just used some stars and stripes on your creations.

Here is a look at my card:

I have used Crate Papers' Cool Kid 6x6 paper pad for this card. I have used stars - both on my paper and cut out for embellishments - and a red and white striped paper. I typed up my sentiment on the computer and I also typed up "Happy Birthday" to add below it but somewhere along the way it got lost - so "You totally rock" it is! I'm sure when I clean up my mess of a desk that I will find the missing sentiment!

I based my card on this older sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge:

I loved this sketch when I first saw it and I am just now getting around to using it. I think it will be one that I use again and again!

Head on over to The Paper Girls Challenge Blog to see how the rest of the design team took on this challenge. I hope you have some time to play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you have a great day!


  1. Cute card, Lori! You did a great job using the partial circle from the sketch, and the papers are really cool.

  2. Love this card, and thanks for the idea of printing a sentiment on the computer. Since I don't stamp the sentiments often keep me from creating cards.
