Red, White and Blue

I thought I'd skip the challenge at BBTB2 because I really didn't have any printed red, white and/or blue paper and plain just wouldn't do.  Then I stopped in to my local "dime store" where they have a very small scrapbook section.  That's not what I went in there for, but couldn't resist taking a look.  And there it was, a red stripe and blue polka dot.  I snatched them up and decided to use the sketch from Mojo Monday to make my patriotic card.  I'm also entering it into the My Sheri Crafts "Oh I Love America" challenge.




My square card is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2.   I used plain red for the layer under the stripe, and navy blue under the star embossed rectangle and the circle.  The flag cut is from A Child's Year. 

It promises to be a great day at the lake.  Hope you all have fun plans for the weekend and coming holiday week.

  5. So glad you got into that local "dime store". I remember when they really were a "dime store". We have a Ben Franklin store in the town I'm camping in and they have a small scrapbook section, too. I can always find something there to get me through a project. Love your embossing. I just moments ago ordered that embossing folder online for the sale price of $1.99 and was so excited. It won't arrive in time to use it for 4th of July projects this year, but there's always next year. Thanks so much for deciding to play along this week at BBTB2, you're card is fantastic.
