Hello friends! It has been a gorgeous day here. I spent some time in my neglected flower beds. I hope you have had a marvelous day as well! Today I have a card I made to join in the challenge over at Mo's Challenge Blog. This week the challenge is Red, White & Blue. Since I love all things patriotic this was perfect for me!
Quite honestly I love pretty much all of Mo's images. I love looking through her shop and picking one out. This one was already in my stash. She is called Waiting for the Parade and I just love her. I especially love the doll next to her as I was a huge Raggedy Ann fan when I was little. In fact, I still have all my dolls and random other things including a metal waste basket that sits under my stamping table. Ann is on one side and Andy is on the other. I colored this sweet image with my Prismacolor pencils. I added a tiny rhinestone to the center of the pinwheel.
I used some wonderful patriotic paper I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I inked all the edges with TH Vintage Photo.The vintage lace is from my stash. Behind the image I added a piece of needlework fabric from my scrap stash. The paper with text I actually created on my computer. I used the words from the Lee Greenwood song "God Bless the U.S.A.". I have always loved that song and decided it would be great on my card. I made my own pinwheel and added a rhinestone to the center and some feathers behind it.
Look at this great paper!!! I love it! I used the same sketch on the writing panel. On the other side I printed the sentiment from my computer. I used a MS border punch to make the frame and sized the text to fit with a small mat.
The back shows off this great paper.
Here you can see my pinwheel a bit better.
I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Mo's Challenge Blog - Red, White & Blue
CLP Challenge Blog - Sketch
I am also entering my card in the challenge at Mo's Dream Team for the design team call.
I think that's about it. Thanks for taking a peek!
Blessings & Hugs,
