my Friend - Red, White and Blue

TGIF..... the start of a long holiday weekend for most of us!!  I have my fingers crossed that the weather will hold out for the weekend, but today already looks like another storm is brewing! :(

This card was created with the 4th in mind.....lots of patriotic - red/wh/blue challenges out there!  I decided to keep with those themes, but to make a card that could be an all occasion card as well.

DP's from Webster's Pages, decorative pin from Maya Road, cardstock, stamp and twine from PTI, vellum butterfly from K&Co., misc. rhinestone flourish, paper doily, vintage button, burlap star and embellishment behind my ribbon.

Created for the following challenges:
Cupcake Inspirations - Red/Wh/Blue
Tuesday Throwdown - Red/Wh/Blue
Paper Issues - Red/Wh/Blue
OTWC - Red/Wh/Blue
Celebrate The Occasion - Red/Wh/Blue
Party Time Tuesday's - Red/Wh/Blue  - and I'm sure there are more out there!!

Thanks for taking a peek - off to post my card! Have a great weekend and stay safe!  Cathy xx :)

  8. this is a great card, I love the combo of different embellies, they go together wondefully. I think if I saw them on your desk before you put them on the card I'd never think they could look so great but each element makes the others look better than they do alone. I hope that made sense to you cause I'm not sure I'm saying very well what I'm thinking.
