OLW95: Stars and Stripes

This week's One-Layer Wednesday Challenge is to make a one-layer card with at least one star and one stripe. Obviously, this week's challenge is in honor of Independence Day in the United States, but feel free to make a card of any theme you want.

I stuck with the holiday theme because I'm American and so gosh darn proud of it!

OLW95 Rules
1. A one-layer card is defined as a piece of card stock folded in half...no other layers allowed.

2. Make a card with at least one star and one stripe. Keep embellishments to a minimum.

3. Upload your card somewhere on the interwebs, and link back to it using the InLinkz button on the sidebar of Simplicity. Remember, if you're linking to your blog, link directly to your OLW post...not to your blog's homepage.

  3. What a great card --- simple, colorful, and meaningful. Doesn't get any better than that.

  4. Gosh, darn, I love this card. Perfection, Miss Susan!

  5. This is a fantastic use of a star with those stripes. I must also comment on your new photo - I LOVE it! It's funny how we think we 'know' someone based on one photo - I have to admit it will take some time for me to get used to you in colour with long hair, but you look fab!

  6. Just noticed as I'm posting my card, that you've ended up with an odd-numbered challenge - hope you're ok! lol!
