Red, White, and Blue Love You


I have a card today that might be the last one going into my final OWH box of cards. With July 4th being just 2 days away, I'm in a very patriotic frame of mind and have made quite a few cards using red, white, and blue.

I used a sheet of Pebbles dsp for the background, and the strip of navy stars on the tag was the edge of the 12x12 dsp. I cut 3 feathers with a Memory Box wild feathers die, and tied them together with some red, white, and blue twisted twine. The tag was done with a SU! scalloped tag punch, and I added 2 mini star brads, along with some white satin ribbon. The red panel was done with a Lil Inker stitched diagonal die, and I added some random heart pieces from my doo-dad box. The sentiment was done with a SSS small "love you" die.

I'm entering this into the Memory Box Challenge #2 - use a MB stamp or die (I used Wild Feathers die) and use the colors red, white, and blue.

I'm also sharing this at the Snippets Playground #183 - use snippets

I'll have something else to share later on this afternoon, so stay tuned. Make it a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Fun rhyme on your title and gorgous card, Carol! Love how you arranged the feathers with twine on the tag and the coordinate stripe full of little stars! Also the red stitched panel looks so well!

BEAUTIFUL!!! I love this one Carol! It caught my eye and is just beautiful. I love those feathers all tied up like that and I love the tag. The papers you have used are just perfect. The hearts and star, perfect. I just got my OWH box mailed yesterday. Glad that it is in the mail now as I was afraid I would forget to mail before the deadline. lol Hugs, Brenda
