I Thank My Lucky Stars for You

Here's my card for the current Fusion challenge.  The red, white, and blue color scheme and star motif of the inspiration photo made it perfect for creating a card to share on Independence Day!

I Thank My Lucky Stars for You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti
I used the layout's large panel to show off a star themed thank you sentiment from Reverse Confetti's Because of the Brave stamp set. I stamped the sentiment in navy blue ink, then accented it with a trio of shiny silver stars die cut with RC's Seeing Stars die set.   The panel was matted on navy cardstock, then adhered to a red and white striped patterned paper panel. I adhered the striped panel to a navy card base to match the mat underneath the sentiment panel.  A pair of sparkly silver sequins, positioned to frame the star trio, completed the design.

Materials Used:
Because of the Brave stamp set, Seeing Stars dies (Reverse Confetti); Memento Nautical Blue ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Night of Navy cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Recollections Silver cardstock (Michaels); Americana 6x6 paper pad (Pebbles); silver sequins; foam tape
