CCEE goes Red white and blue


This week's challenge:

Since this is the 4th of July week in America, we surely need to make a red, white and blue card. Since everyone does not live in the U.S., it does not have to be a patriotic card.

Thanks, Shirley for leaving this challenge behind before you left.  It is a perfect one for this week. 

I made the red stripes with glittery ribbon, and the blue with stars is also ribbon. I have been giving some of my older stamps a chance to swim in an ocean of ink this summer. Some of them haven't seen ink in so long. I colored the SU Stipple butterfly with copic markers. 

Have a fun and safe 4th of July for all my American friends, and if you find a few extra  minutes, come join us over at CCEE Stampers.

Beautiful!!! Why can't I think of something that striking to make?!

Oh wow - the butterfly looks FAB in red white and blue. How clever of you - I'd never have thought of something like that. Great use of ribbon, too! I save themed ribbons from gift packaging and then forget to use them.
