Finally Friday - Red, White & Blue style!!

Hello all and welcome to the end of the week! The year is now into it's second half and July 4th is tomorrow!! (I know you know that!!)

For this week the card I have to share with you is from me! I know many of you out there are familiar with a group called LateNight Stampers. It is set up pretty much the same way UDI is, but not everyone is a SU! demo. Anywho, every week they issue a challenge and the challenge this week is make a card using any shades of Red, White and Blue! And your card has to be made with all current SU! products!

My card turned out a little differently than I had planned, but I do like the end result of how the daisies look like fireworks! They were stamped with the Sanded BG in Night of Navy and Ruby Red, lightly, so as not to overpower the card. I then lightly stamped the Sanded BG in Ruby Red, onto the white piece, and then shaded directly from the stamp pad. A large Filigree brad in the center and there's my flower!

My sketch is from 2 Sketches for 4, which is filled with awesome sketches. I also used the new Teeny Tiny Wishes set that is now available!! Love this versatile and awesome set!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful July 4th, be safe, and find time to stamp!

Happy Stamping!!

That looks fantastic, Ann! The technique on the flower is really neat! I also like the other details, like the flower brad in the middle of the flower, plus the ribbon and the scallop edge. Fabulous!
