Simon Says Stamp Star Parade

Happy 4th of July !! As you may know I have challenged myself to make 4 cards using each die in the series from Simon Says Stamp and I am here today for the grand finale using the Star Parade Die. 

 It's time for lots of Independance day celebrations on the other side of the pond and a special Happy Birthday to 'America' :-)

We have a 'Shaker' theme over on the Wednesday Challenge Blog and as I am really 'into' shakers at the mo' I made another one :-) I used some lovely blue glitter paper behind the aperture and added various stars and diamond dust for the 'shake'

I think aqua is my most fave colour and I love embossing paste mixed with glitter bead gel,, so this one has to be my fave :-)

Another patriotic red/white and blue one :-)

and last but not least I love this one using the Blue Violet Cardstock ,, such a vibrant colour :-)

thanks for looking ! If you would like to see close-ups of the others I made in this series then please click on the piccy's :-)
