Celebrating the Red, White, and Blue

Hello!  There are so many challenges for using Red, White and Blue this week!  I made this card using some items from Doodle Pantry including a Star Digi and Digi Paper.  I printed the Digi from the Doodle Pantry US Star set already colored and added some gold ink to the stars in the center and cut out with a circle die. I layered this with pop up dots on to a Lacey Circle cut in textured Red Card Stock. I used a SU Brilliant Blue Card Base and used a mat of Doodle Pantry Stripes and Stars Digi Paper.  I added a strip of blue cardstock cut with MS Double Loop Punch and layered with White Satin Ribbon. Assembled the card following a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Attached another piece of ribbon to the star and layered ribbon. Finished with a Sentiment from Annabelle Stamps stamped in Memento Paris Dusk ink.

This is such a striking card. The star paper was a great choice for the background and the borders down the center provide great contrast. The focal star looks wonderful...love the gold touches. Thanks for joining us for our Red, White & Blue challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. I look forward to seeing you again soon.
