Red, White & Blue


The first Speedy's Friends Challenge was to create a card or project using red, white & blue. Vicki Dutcher, a fellow Paper Doll, is the blog team coordinator, so just had to squeak out a card before heading to work. I got a couple of new Verve sets in the mail today, so had to ink up some images from the Wishful Elegance set. Don't have matching DP? Create your own with the elegant BG image! Some Diamond Stickles were added to the flower centers. Everything else is pretty much self-explanatory. Another beautiful, sunny day in VA! Thanks for stopping by...

STAMPS: Wishful Elegance (Verve)
PAPER: Pacific Point (SU), Pure Poppy (PTI), White
INK: Pacific Point, Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES: Pure Poppy satin ribbon (PTI), Herringbone EF, CB, Diamond Stickles, 2-step bird punch (leaves), Dimensionals, Vintage button (PTI)
