TCC176 God Bless America

Hi stamping friends!  Happy Wednesday!  It's time for a new Card Concept challenge where we use various concepts to create our artwork!  One of these days, I'm going to try a new concept...I always seem to gravitate towards the same clean-and-layered style, LOL!  Here's our timely inspiration photo: 

I made a simple card since this week has been a bit of a blur; I chose to use the stars and stripes theme as well as the challenge colors to make my clean and layered patriotic card:

This stamp came out shortly after 9/11 and although I have a few patriotic stamps, this is one of my favorites!  I stamped it in Night of Navy and Real Red and diecut it with the Stylish Shapes dies:

I added some Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper stars and a strip of Balmy Blue glimmer paper on top of  some SU and Tim Holtz papers.  I used the sketch from Atlantic Hearts:

I hope you'll find some time to play along with us this week using our inspiration photo!  Be sure to check out what the DT created over at the Card Concept blog; you'll see you don't have to make a patriotic card at all!  Have fun!

I love patriotic cards and this one is no exception. Our community has placed flags up and down the community in the medians and at the clubhouse. It's a thing of beauty honoring those who gave their lives to keep us free.

Love this, LeAnne! I love using that old Stampin Up! stamp every year for patriotic cards! It's perfect and looks amazing on your card, too! I am all decorated for Memorial Day/July 4th, just have to put my flags out in the yard which I will do on Friday. TFS
