Sweet Pea Stampers - Colour Combo

Hiya folks!

Hope all of my American cousins had a fabulous holiday weekend? We here at Sweet Pea Stampers are also celebrating (belatedly) by having a colour combo of 'Red, White and Blue' this week.

I have followed a sketch for my layout from Pixie Cottage:

I inked up the 'Caribbean Treasure' stamp that I got in a sale at Sweet Pea Stamps, and coloured it in the colours of the challenge. I used a blue cardstock, and red swirly paper from Tinker & Co for the backing and blue swirly paper for the frame.

The red ribbon is from the stash. The flowers are made from scraps, with inky petals and stickled dots, with red brads for the centres. I also added some red stickle dots to the frame.

This card also fits a few other challenges. At Pixie Dust Studio they want 'Red, White and Blue' too, and at Raise The Bar they want to see the 'Colours of your Flag', which is red, white and blue (UK).

Why don't you head over to the Sweet Pea Stampers challenge for some more fabulous inspiration from my DT sisters. If you play along this week, you may get to win a GDT spot - see you there folks!

Beautiful card!

But how did you do the flowers? You must have cut part of the petal, then kind of folded into the middle...?? Is it the Retro Flower punch?

Charlotta likes very much!!
