This has been a great weekend for all things Red, White & Blue in the blog world.
I have a combo of 4 challenges to cover this card as follows:-
Sketch Saturday #58 - a brilliant sketch & to feature Red, White & Blue
Penny Black Saturday wk 56 - Also Red, White & Blue
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #39 - 3 Ribbons
Charysma Cardz Thursday - Buttons
As you can see I acheived the R, W & B with the base card, Doodlebug striped paper, downloaded red & white check paper and various blooms.
The 3 pieces of R, W & B ribbon were out of my bits box
The Penny Black stamp is 'Burst of Stars' which is very appropriate and I used Adirondack Red Pepper ink pad.
The brads and 2 buttons were out of my stash.
The Best Wishes sentiment was a freebie with a magazine years ago.
I have enjoyed making these last 2 cards as it is so good to get away from pink and green.
And the Union Jack flag being Red, White & Blue I feel very patriotic too.
