I also made a card for Less is More challenge this week to use the colors of our nation's flag. Oh, with a request to include a picture of the flag.
I took this picture last year on Independence Day - I hardly ever have a use for it <grinning>
And here's the card it inspired:
I think I like this one, too, but again, not really sure. Maybe some texture on the Whisper White layer? I love this new stamp set Perfectly Penned! You've probably seen the vase made from the Ornament Punch (here in Night of Navy) many other places, and the flowers (Real Red) are from the Bitty Shapes Punches. I just couldn't bring myself to draw those flower stems in blue or red, hoping the tiny bit of Old Olive isn't too distracting. Now, I just need to remember link this post at the Less is More blog!
While trying to get back into the challenges I've been enjoying, I decided to get the new Shopping Our Stash prompt - Dogs, Digis, Denim done early instead of at the last minute this week. I got the D is for Dog stamp set FREE last year during Sale-A-Bration but I've only used it once, so it was the right choice. I found inspiration for the colors at ColourQ and for the layout at Stamping 411 - it came together better than I expected (well, after three failed attempts, anyway):
Now if I could just remember to post links at all the other sites ;)
