Made in the USA

*this is the 2nd post of the day, please scroll down below for my Clear & Simple Stamps post*


Today at Blogger's Challenge we are celebrating Independence Day by using Red, White and Blue. This was another one of my rejects from a publication call.  The background paper was created with one of the background stamps from the All4Stars set.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: All4Stars from The{Stamps}of Life
Cardstock: (all from Clear & Simple Stamps) You're Style Blue Me Away, Dare to be a Diva Red, A Blanc Check, Jennie Bowlin The Farmer's Wife
Inks: You're Style Blue Me Away and Dare to be a Diva Red from Clear & Simple Stamps, Embellishments: Designer Mix brads, dimensionals, Marvy Uchida circle punch


I created this next card for the Paper Crafts Color Inspiration #6, it is a Father's Day card for my Dad, late, but we'll be seeing him tomorrow.  I based this card off the FTL#132 sketch-love ALL their sketches but never get enough time to play before the next one is posted. 

Hope you will get time to play with us at Blogger's Challenge this week.

Card details:
Stamps: A Guy Thing and Golf Pro from Clear & Simple Stamps
Cardstock: Dare to be a Diva Red, A Blanc Check
Inks: Simply Blue-tiful, Perfect Little Black Dress
Embellishments: Swiss Dots cuttle bug folder, dimensionals
