VSC: Red, White & Blue!

Good morning, my beautiful friends!!!

I'm back to post my card for the new challenge that starts today over on the V's Sweet Challenge blog!  The theme?  RED, WHITE & BLUE and I'm lovin' it!!! V's Sweet Ideas is also sponsoring this month's challenge--woohoo!!! :D

I had a blast making this card.  First of all, I got to play with my spankin' new Simon Says Stamp embossing paste and Falling Stars stencil--pure bliss!!! *stoked*  The stars couldn't go more perfect for a red, white and blue theme, especially with the 4th of July rolling right around the corner... (;  The large "you" die cut is also from SSS and it's from this set here.  I'm in love with it! (No pun intended lol)

The "are my" part of the sentiment, as well as the life saver and anchor are from Lawn Fawn's "float my boat" stamp and die cut sets.  I cut out a stitched journaling card out of vellum (also by LF)--ADORE! The beautiful v-striped, red ribbon is by May Arts and can be purchased on the V's Sweet Ideas online store.  I also tied some red twine through the loop of the anchor, because obviously I needed more red in there... (; heheh  I'm in love with how this card turned out.  I can't wait to play some more with my embossing paste and new stencils!! *leaping for joy*

And now I present to you my red, white and blue card... (:



Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I hope I have inspired you.  Don't forget to hop on over to the V's Sweet Challenge blog to check out what the rest of the DT gals have created just for you!  I hope you'll join us by playing along in this month's fun challenge!  'Til next time, my loves!  GOD richly bless!  MUAH!! XOXO

Love,
Gri
