Challenge #12 - Red, White and Blue Color Challenge

Hi there... hope your enjoying your day. Today brings challenge #12 - "Red, White and Blue" Color Challenge. I am challenging you to incorporate the colors Red, White and Blue or a combination of any of these colors, ie Red & White or Blue &White, into your project. Color reference: Papertrey Ink's - Pure Poppy, White and Enchanted Evening. Hope you have a nice vacation planned for the upcoming holiday weekend! I wish we could get out of town.

Now for some inspiration... heres a card I did using Papertrey Ink ribbon to create a wavy American Flag. I had a hard time getting the picture to come out good with the white ribbon. This was taken outside in the sunlight and I still couldn't get a great picture. It looks so much better in person. I also did this card for the Cards magazine challenge - 4th of July cards.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Hero Arts CL382 (star), sentiment computer printed
Paper: PTI Pure Poppy, white
Other: PTI Ribbon in Pure Poppy, White and Enchanted Evening
