Patriotic Style

This was for today's Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS, Patriotic Style. You had a choice to either make a patriotic card using stamps that weren't usually used for patriotic themes, or make a non-patriotic card using patriotic colors. I chose to create a non-patriotic card using patriotic colors. I used my new Purely Pomegranate and Blue Bayou. The ribbon isn't an exact match, but I thought it was close enough. I had to pull out the Stamp-a-ma-Jig for this one in order to line up the borders around the flowers. I don't use that as much as I should. Things look so much nicer when they're not crooked! :) Lastly, the "bling" is from Walmart. At first I added some Stardust Stickles to the centers of the flowers, but it didn't show up enough. Hope you're having a great start to your weekend! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Three For You punch box; Paper- Whisper White, Basic Black, Purely Pomegranate, Blue Bayou; Ink- Purely Pomegranate, Blue Bayou, Basic Black; Accessories- Bling from Walmart, Stamp-a-ma-Jig, Three For You flower punch, red and blue grosgrain ribbon.

What a cute little card! Love the layout. I LOVE my Stamp-a-majig, it's definitely a must-have in my stamping collection.
