Three Cheers for the Red, White, and Blue!

Happy 4th of July weekend America! Our challenge for this week's Blogger's Challenge is called Wave the Flag...Red, White, and Blue! I went with my favorite little "Biker Bee" from Stampedous and I was able to combine that with the Mojo Monday Sketch for this week. I started off with a white card base and then a layer of Stampin' Up Real Red and a piece of retired, Stampin' Up designer paper in Bashful Blue. After the Star Dust Stickles on my main image dried, I used a sewing tool for some light piercing around my little bee. (A trick that I picked up from Sweet Miss Daisy's blog.) A piece of gingham ribbon, some Making Memories brads, a few scraps of Bashful Blue and Real Red, and a little scallop help from my Nesties complete this layer. Then I used my oval punches and a small sentiment from Hero Arts along with two American Crafts buttons to finish off my creation.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Enjoy the rest of your Friday...Toodles! :D
