Happy Friday and Happy 4th of July Weekend. This weeks challenge is, Wave The Flag (Red, White and Blue). Seems that both Lisa and Kerry were thinking alike this week as they both issued the same color challenge. You can view my card for the 3CT in the post below this one.
Since I'd already done a Patriotic card I was going to go non-traditional with my red, white and blue colors and then I ran across this image that was already stamped (not colored) in a scrap box and since her basket included a "Flag" I thought why not go with this for my card.
The image is from a fairly old SU Hostess set from 2001 called, Country Charm. I colored it up using my Prisma Colored pencils and added some White Liquid Applique to the Pussy willows in the vase. I paired my image up with some more paper from the Sweetwater Firecracker paper collection. I also added a punched border of white and the sentiment is from a really old retired SU set (1991 - Americana) that I just can't bear to part with. I high lighted the heart with a red Spica glitter pen.
Colors used were: Night of Navy, Real Red, Brocade Blue and Whisper White. I also added 2 star brads (source unknown) and a punched Star with a heart button and some red, white and blue grosgrain ribbon (SU retired).
Be sure to stop by the other Bloggers Challenge members blog and check out their creations as well.
Have a very Safe and Happy 4th of July.
