Stars and Stripes Forever

Today at BettyBee's Buzz, the HoneyBees are tearing and ripping up cardboard boxes!  This is what I did with mine :)   I also recycled a Diet Coke can to create the blue field of stars, by coloring the aluminum with a Copic marker, then spritzing it with alcohol, and embossing with the Cuttlebug.  It is very easy to cut with scissors.  My star was hand cut.  The button is tied with gold metallic crochet cotton.  The two sentiment stamps were heat embossed in cobalt blue.  Finish off with three sparkly gems, and this card is worthy of a snappy salute! 

I do hope you will make two stops today... One at BettyBee's Buzz to check out the rest of the HoneyBee creations... and leave them some love!  And TWO to join Madison in her kick off for I Feel the Love at Funky Cards.  This spunky teenager, with a heart of gold, will be spearheading a great program to gather cards for a worthy recipient. 

Thanks for stopping by, and, as always... have a great day, and smile, share, and make someone happy!

Happy creating~
