The Card Concept Challenge #207- The Red, White & Blue

Hello my stamping friends!

I hope all of you are doing well and enjoying the nice spring weather! 

It has been gorgeous here in North Carolina !

Beautiful Azaleas everywhere and all the green sprouting from the trees!

We are starting a new challenge today at


Here is the photo inspiration: 

I was inspired by the pretty red flowers and the red, white & blue colors to create my Mother’s Day card!

Clean & Layered Style card

~Designer papers, embossing

~Clean lines


~Clean & Fresh looking

~Some colored images

~White space

Here is my card:

I decided to use this beautiful embossing folder and some navy card stock to create the background.

I die cut some red flowers, leaves and flower centers out of white Card Stock and then I colored them with some Copic Markers.  I added Black Stickles to the centers of the flowers.

I die cut a scalloped circle with some white card stock. 
I stamped the sentiment, then adhered the flowers around it with foam adhesive.
I think they just pop against that navy background.

I hope I have inspired you to join our challenge!
