Stars and stripes

   The Scrapping 4 Fun challenge which begins today has the theme of ladies and the sponsor is Sheep Ski Designs. I have been lucky enough to have been asked to be a guest designer for this challenge and this card is what I came up with.
   The striped paper and the star strip were created using the My Craft Studio graphic program. I wrapped red tape round the striped paper either side of the star strip before attaching it to white card. The window was cut down from a Tattered Lace die cut and I attached acetate from packaging behind the frames. I then attached a clip art picture behind the whole window and attached it to the card. The lady was cut from white card using the Tattered Lace die called Lauren out for a stroll and I coloured it using Promarkers. Finally I attached a computer generated sentiment.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - anything goes
   Cute Card Thursday - dies and punches
   Crafty Catz - anything goes with optional mirri card
   The Crafter's Cafe - feminine

   4 Crafty Chicks - celebrate women
   Crafting By Designs - anything goes
   Penny's Paper-Crafty - anything goes
   The East Wind - celebrate the women
