Star Light, Star Bright!

It's Friday and time for our Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Challenge this week! We are focusing on stars in our projects. They may be patriotic stars; A+ Great Job! stars; twinkle, twinkle little stars, ANY kind of stars you like. And, they may be created any way you like, punched or die cut stars, stickers, star paper, I think you get the idea!

I chose to recycle a gift bag I received some time ago! I thought the checked bag with attached ribbon could use a few stars! I utilized all size dies to create the various stars and star frames. I then swiped my white ink pad over all the stars for a bit of texture! The ribbon tail stars are attached with a glue dot, easy as pie! The sentiment on the center star comes to us from Rubber Soul/Wordsworth's Everyday Greetings found in The Stamp Simply Store! The star tag is attached with gorgeous 1/8" red silk ribbon! This candy filled bag will travel with us Saturday to our friends Fourth of July barbecue!

We hope you can play along this week! Please use keyword ssnotime146 when uploading your creations to a public forum, remember to upload over on Sharon's Mr Linky too! And please let us know if you upload to your blog! You may play anytime, as many times as you want! The most important rule to play, HAVE FUN! Check out the Stamp Simply talented designer's Star creations!
