Red, White and Blue Birthday

For today's sampling I used the stamp sets: Pick a Petal, Little Pieces, & Sincere Salutations. I started with a Real Red card base. The next layer is Bashful Blue with is stamped with the small flower image from Pick a Petal in Bashful Blue. I added a scalloped edge using the corner rounder to make the scallop. I then used the 1/8" circle punch along the scallop. I layered red and white down the side of the card and finished the white edge with another scallop made the same way. I stamped the greeting in Real Red and tied a piece of Red Gingham Ribbon in a square knot before attaching this strip to the card. For the focal image I stamped the flower in Real Red and Bashful Blue then layered circled that had been stamped with Little Pieces and punched with the 1/2" circle punch. And there you have it. I am considering a version of this card for my convention swaps. And I'm going to place a small order from the new catty today. I want more, but I need a few things for swaps and that's all I afford at the moment.

Have a great Tuesday!
