BBTB2

happy monday! over at BBTB2 our super sweet susan has chosen a patriotic theme for us this week. be sure to check out the fab projects by the rest of the dt and of course we love it when you play along with us.


for this card i used graphically speaking ( flag,stars and words of july) and base camp cartridges (4th)

i used my cuttlebug and stars embossing folder for the white panel which i used an ek success border punch on. i inked everything up a bit with colorbox fluid chalk
 i also attached some ribbon.

thanks so much for stopping by your comments always make me smile thank you for that :) have a great rest of day! xxxshelly

Pretty! I love how you worked with darker shades of red and blue, it really gives your project a fun vintage appeal.

Excellent card, Shelly. I've never been able to make myself put staples on anything, but I always like the look on other people's projects. I love the way it attaches the ribbon. Perfect embossing folder for a 4th of July card, too.

Such a wonderful card, Shelly! You did a great job. I had no idea that GS had that wonderful flag cut - - you go girl!! Your pop of ribbon is a wonderful finishing statement!!!

Hope you are doing well - - hugs,

Susan
