My card to share this afternoon is for three challenges!!!  The SCS challenge F4A14 is to use one of your collections as your inspiration; Krystal’s Stampin Celebration challenge is to use a summer picnic theme; and Makeesha’s challenge was a sketch:


One of my many “collections” is vintage Americana.  Most of my collection contains items that I have made over the years; I can’t afford the real stuff!  But I love anything patriotic, red, white & blue, country….that kind of stuff!  When I realized I had not used my patriotic embellishments from PTI’s Vintage Picnic set, I thought today would be a good day to break them out!  The image is stamped on Sahara Sand for that vintage look:


I printed some digi gingham paper for my front panel, and did a little grunge job on some  SU ribbon for embellishment!  The flag was stamped twice and popped up outside the Nestie scallop frame. And for fun, I decorated the inside as well.


And I have decided to try something new!  This card will be for sale on my Etsy shop!  Hopefully I will be putting some of my other creations on as well… “shop name” is SillyStamper, so be sure to check it out!  Thanks for visiting today—I’ll be back tomorrow with my last JUGS creation!


And just for fun, here are a few of my Americana collection pieces:
