Red, white and blue

Hello lovely people,

It's time for another challenge at Lili's Little Fairies and our theme this week is 'Red, White and Blue.'  Ok, I have to admit to being a little thrown by this one as it is so not the colours I would normally go for.  But then I realised that I could go more vintage with the colours and that I could use one of the gorgeous new LOTV Pretty Vintage stamps and this card was born;


I just adore these new large sentiments and they make it super quick to whip up a card...well, relatively quick in my case as I always have to faff around a bit!


I am giving this card to one of my work colleagues for passing a course, and yes, you guessed right, it's a MALE colleague!  So, I kept my hands off my pretty embellies and just used some manly twill tape and a few stars to finish it off.


Card recipe;
DP: Maja Designs - By the Sea & Vintage Spring Basics
Stars: Quick Kutz die
Twill tape: from Crafty Ribbons

I would like to enter this card in the Sweet Stampin' Challenge which has the theme of 'Not Cute.'

For oodles more inspiration pop over to Lili's Little Fairies and check out the stunning creations from the other Fairies.  Our prize up for grabs this week is £10 to spend at Crafty Ribbons so dig out the red, white and blue and join in the fun!

Thanks for visiting,

Hugs,
Kat xx

Happy Fourth to you, Kat! I was thinking this morning that I need to learn how to create some "tailored" style cards which are very attractive and appealing - like this one - it's so pretty with your monochromatic choice of colors. Thanks for sharing! hugs, de
