Card A Day Blog Entry: Red, White, and Blue

The theme this week at the Card A Day Blog is Red, White, and Blue, and here is my entry, inspired by Mojo Monday designer, Debbie Carriere. Here is my take on her creation.

How I made my card:

First, I started off with a 5.5"x4.25" white card base,then I added a piece of red and white striped patterned paper, 5.25"x4" to the front of the card. I then cut out a piece of white card stock, 4.75"x2.25", and attached it on top of a piece of blue and white star patterned paper that measures 5.25"x2.75", I then attached that to my red and white striped paper.

For embellishments, I made four banners using the same star patterned paper that I used for the mat, placed them going in alternating directions, and then added a red button with a piece of red and white baker's twine tied into it, and placed them on the ends of the banners.

For my sentiment, I stamped the words " Thank You" on a piece of white card stock, cut around it, then added it to a mat using the same star patterned paper. I place it at the bottom of my card in the middle.

This card will be sent with my next shipment of cards to Operation Write Home, and be used for an Any Hero Card.

As always, I would like to know what you think of my card, so if you have the time, please leave me a comment. Also, if you like challenges, please stop by our blog and enter our monthly challenge. We offer a prize to one lucky winner each month.

Nicely done, the paper use really gives it character
