Owl Wish U a Happy 4th!

My one and only Independence Day card for this year!
It is a spinner card and the star rolls (kind-a-sort-of) from one side to the other.
This card is made of Stampin' Up only materials and supplies except for the star.
A die cut I bought years ago and this is the first time I have used it.
Sound familiar?








This card gave me a couple of new challenges. First time to make a spinner card similar to what my DD did for her DT card at 365 Cards.

Top Tip Tuesday Tip -Make you own Pattern Paper - The stripes on the card? Wanted to use ribbon but it didn't work so I made a table on Word and changed the lines to Cherry Cobbler (by using the RGB code) and making the lines heavier. Kinda looks like ribbon - just glad I didn't make a bow out of it!

On the the challenges I am entering this in and we have a lot of patriotic themes this week...
