Red, White & Blue Monkey

Second post again!
This is for entry for the A La Card Monkey Weekly Challenge.
Just when I thought I was going to buy the Star punch, since I didn't have anything that would cut a star, SU went and retired the Star Punch.  Well, fear not, my friends.  There is still the Stars #2 Big Shot die available!  Look, it's so economical.  It cuts 4 different sizes of stars!  Anyways, I don't really have any appropriate image for this challenge, so I'm going without.  I looked high and low for a good "Celebrate" stamp.  Guess where I found it?  This stamp comes from a set from 1992!  OK, the sticker says 1992, but I know I probably bought it in 1999 or 2000 when I first started stampin'!  This was a great set that I just never could part with it.  And now, see, it's come in handy again!  Hmm... maybe it's time for me to convert this set to cling-mount.

When I was done, I thought I could also enter in this week's special PPA challenge.
The challenge is to show your favorite technique.  Well, I certainly love my Big Shot for embossing.  Here I used 2 different embossing folders.  AND I used a die.  So maybe anything with the Big Shot is my favorite technique! :)

That's a neat card. I really like the star brad. I'm going to have to get a big shot at one point. It really makes a difference.

I had the same problem with finding an image, that is why I did a Cowboy card. I love your star card a lot, and you are right us the big shot for you stars from now on. I was thinking of getting the star punch because I lost mine, but I did not. Thanks for making a card with us at A La Card Monkey.
