Fantastic Friday Challenge is Red, White and Blue!!!

The challenge over on Korin's blog was to use the colors Red, White and Blue to celebrate our Nation's b-day!! I know that the challenge is over today but I made this card the day I got this stamp in the mail but wanted to wait until it was actually the 4th of July to post it!!! But I did send it to Korin to look at!! (LOL) As soon as I seen this image I wanted it!! I think it is darling and my parents are big on (sail)boating so I thought I could make some cards with her for them. After I had finished the card I thought her hands looked weird so I wanted to put a sign in her hands. Didn't know what but then seen this USA stamp I had from a July 4th set and it was the perfect size!! The flower and corner stamp is from Stempelglede's grunge collection!! (I love it!!)

Paper: DCWV matstack, Cryogen white CS
Ink: Brilliance graphite, distressed inks by Ranger
Accessories: Silver dots ~ JoAnn's, Flower ~ Prima


Well thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! For the few Americans who read my blog have a great day today with your friends and family and best of all enjoy your fireworks!!! (Must admit that is my favorite part of the day!!)
