Thinking of You in Red, White & Blue!!

Hello all and Happy Friday!!! I am on a 4 day weekend, and I am soooo happy!!! I have no special plans, except to do just whatever it is I wish! (Even though I have plenty of things to keep me occupied!!) I'm going to be working on my upcoming New Catalog Open House scheduled for July 19th and just plan stamping! I have a lot of cards to post for you that I completed during the week I was in Indianapolis.

My card for you today is based on 2 challenges. The first is from the StampUpLNStampers yahoo group I belong too, to make a card using any shades of Red, White and Blue! The second challenge is from 2 Sketches 4 You weekly sketch.

The base card is Whisper White, and then I used Ruby Red textured and Night of Navy for my red and blue. All except the base card and the RR text piece came from my scrap bin! Even the daisies!

The daisies were stamped with the Sanded BG in either Ruby Red or NON, very lightly, so as to not overpower the card. I punched a 3/4" circle in NON and placed a large Filigree brad over it. The entire daisy ensemble is popped up on double dimensionals!!

The new Teeny Tiny Wishes phrases set is what I used for my sentiment. This is an awesome and versatile set, much like Everyday Flexible Phrases but enhanced. This was one of the sets I picked out with my SAB rewards.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th, and you can find time to stamp!! Don't forget for my GCA #50, I will have an awesome blog prize! Sneak peeks to be shown this weekend!!

Happy Stamping!!
