Vintage Summer: Little Yellow Bicycle

I was so pleased this year to see many fun new collections with a patriotic theme:  perfect for summer.  One of my favorites is Little Yellow Bicycle's Vintage Summer, which mixes stars and stripes with softer colors and patterns. 

The collection has a great patchwork pattern in one of the papers and I used that as the backdrop of my card, adding zig zag stitches to each row and colum. 

To make the tag, I punched a star in the chambray striped paper, then backed the opening with red stars.  I stitched around the star several times for added dimension and a rustic feel. To finish the tag, I added a few stickers, chipboard and a stick pin. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
