Color Challenge with Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #24

It's time for a new challenge over at 

We have an amazing sponsor this week: 
 Prize: $10 Gift Certificate 

And I had the pleasure of using this wonderful 
sentiment by STAMPlorations.
The Crafting Cave, Stamplorations, Red,White, Blue, Surprise
I also discovered a new technique while making this card.
I have a transparency from Teresa Collins Freestyle Collection.

 I had a 5x5 piece cut and had every intention of using on my card.
It wasn't working for me, so I grabbed my distress inks in Barn Red and Faded Jeans
swiped them directly across the transparency, flipped it over onto my card stock and pressed with my hand. I was so surprised to see the stars. They are raised just enough to 
leave a pretty nice impression. I said, well, that's it! I did heat emboss the bigger stars and dabbed some Picket Fence distress paint around the edges. Fun, give it a try! Feel free to email me if you have any questions.
