Paper Players Color Challenge: Confetti Celebration

Good morning!  We're wrapping up the school year this week (Aidan has 1 1/2 days left and looking forward to the start of summer).  Today I'm playing along with the Paper Players color challenge and as soon as I saw the colors I new I had to participate as I love these colors as they are very patriotic and this time of year very fitting.

I started with Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Dapper Denim cardstock behind the Whisper White cardfront.  To create the cardfront I started by stamping using the Hardwood stamp set and Crumb Cake ink (I stamped off once so the color was lighter) and then embossed it with the Big Shot and Lucky Stars Embossing Folder.  Finally I used a sponged to gently rub some Crumb Cake ink over the cardfront to really highlight the stars.

Next I took a piece of Cherry Cobbler Designer Series Paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper Stack and cut it out using the Big Shot and Layering Circles Framelits.  The stars were also created using framelits, this time the Stars Collection framelits and I created the star outline using Dapper Denim cardstock and the smaller star using Silver Glimmer Paper (which was attached with a dimensional so it pops up).

For the greeting I used the Confetti Celebration stamp set (even though it has a lit of birthday stamps this stamp works for any celebration) and stamped in Dapper Denim ink on Whisper White cardstock and then cut out with the Layering Ovals Framelits and lightly sponged around the edge with Crumb Cake ink.  I used a dimensional to attach the greeting to the cardfront.  The final touch was a small Metallic Enamel Star.

The love the rustic look with the patriotic color scheme, it's classic and very homey.
