Red, White, Blue

Morning crafty chica's. Had a rough night and couldnt sleep so i got up and made this small card for a friend.

I took a piece of red card stock and cut it to 4x3. I then took white card stock and made it a bit smaller at 3 1/2 x 2 1/2. I then took blue card stock and made that smaller then the red and white, the blue is at 3 3/4 x 2 3/4 . I then took my fancy hello stamp and stamped it onto a small torn up piece of paper 1x1. I inked the edges of my small pallet with blue chalk ink.Put it in the left top corner with a pop dot for the 3-d affect.  I took a red piece of card stock and hand cut a star about 2x2. I used my dollar store star puncher and made 5 small white stars to outline my large red one.I kinda faux stitched around them in blue ink I took a small piece of red,white,blue ribbon and made a knot in middle and zap dotted it to the corner. For the middle of my star I used a quelled star made in the famous red , white, blue colors. Cant remember who made this star as I got it from a fellow crafter. the quelled one has 4 itty bitty blue stars on top of it.

I gladly entered this in to Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog
