Flying The Flag in Florals!


So, I've found another challenge blog....this one is Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog. The challenge this week is to make a card using the colors of your flag. I love red, white and blue, but I don't usually thing to make cards in this color combo. Though another one I made comes to mind...and I liked that one too!!! ....note to self!! (wink!) This challenge also fits another challenge this week, for Daring Challenge Blog.

This is a new card I made using Fred, She Said's Polka Dotty Flowers. They come in FOURTEEN gorgeous hues....they are a must have if you like polka-dotted posies!!! I recently met a new stamping friend, *Bug* from CA. She mentioned making a circle easle card....so I decided it was time to try one! I googled for a tutorial and came up with one by Valita. Rather than re-invent the wheel....check out her great tutorial!!

I used a Hero Arts Hello stamp, Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots embossing folder, SU!'s scalloped circle die, and a Sizzlet Swirl Die.

I hope that this card makes you grin! It makes the GLOOMY day here more cheery for sure!!
Thanks for the fun ladies!!!
