Just Us Girls Wild Card Challenge: Stars & Sparkle


Happy Saturday!  It's a wild card week over at Just Us Girls!   Maria came up with a fun challenge for us to highlight the upcoming Fourth of July Holiday!  Use stars and sparkle on our card. Instead of going literal with the theme, I decided to use limited stars and sparkle to highlight the skyline on my card.  This is a die cut from my Cricut Cartridge Plantin Schoolbook.  I know I've shown two projects this week with my Cricut which is good because it collects a little bit too much dust.  I love how gorgeous the skyline looks with the Gina K Casual Fridays patterned paper.




I hope you're inspired to play along with us!
I'd love to see what you create!  Please stop over to the other design team members blogs and have a peek!
