PPA 49 ... Happy 4th of July

Another challenge = another card = getting to spend time in my craft room.  Today's card is made for the PPA 49 Inspiration Challenge .  Be sure to stop by and play along with us.  It is so much fun and it gets your creative juices flowing.  I apologize for the picture being a bit on the dark side.  I took the picture tonight rather than earlier in the day.

For this card I pulled out some really old sets.  Matter of fact, the flag stamp has never been used and I got it in 1999.


Stamps: Seasonal Patches, Year Round Fun
Ink:  Real Red, Ballet Blue
CardstockReal Red, Ballet Blue, White
Accessories:  CB star embossing folder, Nestabilities circle dies, eyelet, ribbon, thread, dimensionals

I did not have any Ballet Blue ribbon, so I used white ribbon and ran it across the ink pad.  I like the look you get from doing that. 

It's been a great day...Stampin' Up released their new catalog today...yippee.  I've already placed an order!  Lots of new goodies will be coming my way shortly!

Thanks for stopping by and I enjoying reading your comments.  Have a great day!
