Stars and Stripes

I made this card with out the Simon says Stamps MediumTag dies and this card made me to decide to get them especially has I had to cut the white bit freehand.
I've used some Doodlebug papers for the strip across the top and the I paper pieced the balloons, one advantage of clear stamps you can see what you're stamping on so each balloon I manage to line up a star.
The tag is made with the Tag Sayings from Simon Says Stamp, the outline star stamp is from Friend Flags stamp set again from Simon Says Stamp.
The star die cuts yes are Simon says Stamps but I really hand set called Large Holiday Shapes and so it the Happy and the sentiment are both from the Happy Sentiment set.
I made sure that some of the stars go off the page, many years ago I was told this looks good visually and they were right.
Remember there's lots happening at SimonSaysStamp during their Stamptember I would definitely recommend subscribing to the blog to keep up with all the tutorials and inspiration and give aways.

I'm back 2pm with a chance to win not one prize but two at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
