Wish upon a star

Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here with this month challenge and it's STARS AND STRIPES.

I know, stars and stripes are usually this American flag things, but as I am not an American, I just made a lovely small arch deco with red, black and gold colours and a lot of WOW! Embossing powders.
This is an easy and well known technique of making stripes with double sided glue tapes and the only thing it takes is time.
Just begin from the lower corner, add a small glue strip, fill with WOW! powder and heat emboss it. Then cover the already embossed stripe with a piece of paper, glue another glue strip over it and.. You sure understand the technique.
The stars (and the basic arch shape ) are from Tando Creative UK chipboards and heat embossed with a mix of gold and glitter WOW!powders.
The separate arch frame was also heat embossed with Ebony Black  powder and then the central striped piece was inserted into it.
Some bling touches (FWAB) and this piece was done.

Now it's your turn!
Play with us and you can win some gorgeous WOW! products.
