Bloggers Challenge- Patriotic



The Bloggers Challenge for this week is Patriotic.  It really got me thinking about summer and warm days!  Since I completely forgot to do last week's challenge, I decided to combine them.  Last week was CASE yourself.  So I took a card I had in my stash (which I actually made at a demo shoebox swap a while ago) and changed the bottom color and the stamp set.  The top card is for this week's challenge, and the card below is the card I already had. 

Here's what I used on the 1st card: 
stamp set: Warm Words 
paper:Real Red, Night of Navy, Whisper White 
ink: Craft white 
accessories: hemp twine natural, Real Red 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Night of Navy 1/4" grosgrain ribbon

Great job with the challenges. I've always loved the torn paper as a flag.
