Hello card crafters! We hope you have had a fabulous summer so far!  Today's challenge is inspired by the holiday we just celebrated in the USA--the Fourth of July which is all about red, white, blue, Stars AND Stripes.  Now while this challenge is about the Stars AND Stripes, you can use any color AND any theme as long as your card has BOTH Stars AND Stripes!  Also, your card must be A2 size (4.25" x 5.5") and flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing.

Our designers have come up with a wonderful assortment of themes using Stars AND Stripes.  Enjoy their creativity and please click the link by each Designers name to visit their blog for more details.

  1. Okay, so I'm confused. My calendar does not show July 16 on a Sunday. It is on a Wednesday on my calendar. So is it Wednesday July 16, or is it Sunday, either the 13th or 20th.?????????????????

    1. Ha,ha. I'm the one confused. I was in a hurry when I did the post because of the holiday and other things on my mind. The challenge ends on Sunday July 20th! I'm fixing the post and linky now. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!!
