God Bless America

Hello!  I am so glad you could join me today.  The Ribbon Carousel has a great challenge this week, to make a project featuring the Red/White and Blue!  Here is my card.

To start, I used Bazzill's Waxed Lips, Whirlypop and Marshmallow cardstocks for my simple project.

I die cut stars out of my panel and layered them up, adding a sentiment from Skipping Stones Home of the Brave set.  I then added a bit of star ribbon that came in the June Ribbon Kit from the Ribbon Carousel shop along with a twine threaded button.  The inspiration for my card came from the latest Country Living magazine, the front cover in fact, here is a look at it.  I was inspired by one of the pillows.

I hope you play along with us, there is always a great prize involved.  Have a wonderful 4th of July American friends, we are blessed indeed!
