Lawnscaping #108 - Stars & Stripes

Hi crafty friends! Today is the beginning of a new challenge over on the Lawnscaping Challenge blog. This challenge is sponsored by the super generous folks over at Lawn Fawn.

The theme of the challenge is stars and stripes which is perfect for the upcoming 4th of July holiday. I don't usually make 4th of July cards, so I decided to make a thank you card inspired by the festive colors and challenge theme. For today's card, I finally used the kitty from the "My Lucky Charm" set by Lawn Fawn.

I colored the kitty with Copic Markers and cut him out using the coordinating die. I die cut the star-shaped balloon out of pattern paper from the "Pint-Sized Patterns: Beachside" 6x6 paper pack using one of the balloon dies from the "Party Balloons" set. I also used the balloon string die to cut the string out of white cardstock.  I cut some pattern paper from the same paper pack using a stitched rectangle die and cut the shaker window using a stitched circle die. I filled the shaker with Pretty Pink Posh sequins, silver stars and silver shimmer beads. I used a Pretty Pink Posh stitched border die to cut a strip of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the "Lucky Stars" set.

This was such a fun card to make and I just love how it turned out. I'm actually planning on sending this card to my brother to let him know just how I much I appreciate him.
