Wish Big ...

Hello all and welcome to this week's challenge at The Beary Scrap Challenge Blog!  We're doing DIY (Do It Yourself) embellishments again this week with a {fun} twist ... add red, white or blue -- I added all three colors to my card to celebrate the upcoming 4th of July Holiday in the US!!!

My DIY embellishment was so much fun to make!  I punched a large star from a snipett of Echo Park's For The Record - Advertisement Collection.   I then punched a smaller star with some cream cardstock and added some pretty Silver German Glass Glitter - yum!  I adhered the smaller, glittered star to the larger newsprint star and glued this onto a pretty seam binding bow!  I bundled up a couple 4mm Rose Buds in white with a piece of blue baker's twine and tucked this little nosegay under the star embellishment.  A sweet red and crystal trinket pin finishes off this pretty adornment!

To further embellish my pretty, patriotic card, I added a lovely little 10mm mulberry paper rose in white and some bling rhinestones from Kaisercraft!   So, there you have it ... a pretty little patriotic lovelie with a hint of vintage charm!

Thanks so much for sharing my creations here at The Beary Scrap Challenge blog during April, May and June with me!  Sadly, this is my final post and the end of my three-month Guest Designer term ... but you can rest assured I'll be back playing along with these fun challenges weekly along with all of YOU!

A big thank you to Kimm and the rest of TBS girlies for allowing to to share this special time creating with the team!  I had a blast and enjoyed every single second of my crafty time here!
