Celebrate Red White And Blue

Whoo Hoo It's time for another challenge at Catch The Bug! It's summer, the heat is high, and Independence Day is just around the corner!  So, what more fitting of a theme than summer and/or 4th of July! This should be an easy one for you!  Remember, you can play along with us up to three times per challenges, and as always. we have our usually digi prize packs from Bugaboo Stamps up for grabs! Come play with us!

My card uses the image Margaret Calendar Months - July USA, from Bugaboo Stamps, and colored with Promarkers,  The papers are new, from Archiver's.  I used sheer blue ribbon from my stash and a red and white gingham bow. My card layout uses the sketch at Sketches By Carly. The star was punched with punches by Creative Memories, blinged up with some diamond gemstones.  My ticket was punched with the new ticket stub punch by Stampin Up.  Gemstone stars from my stash were added to the bottom right corner for extra bling.
