Thinking of Betsy Ross 30

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, June 26, 2010 @ 2:28 AM | ,

Hi Everyone! Since I finished all my necessary projects ahead of time, I have time to play with some of my favorite products :)

I mentioned in yesterday's post that I will be traveling out of the country in a few short days. To make this card, I played along with this week's JustRite Stampers Friday Challenge #024. The challenge is to combine the sketch below & use Red, White and Blue.

When I saw these colors, I thought of Betsy Ross stitching up the American Flag :)

After stamping the oval ornate border, I pulled out a Spellbinders™ S4-138 Petite Ovals LG die template to cut/emboss the image. To add a lil' dimension, I paper-pieced the heart image & popped it up with a few foam dots.

I mentioned yesterday, that our flight is approximately 19 hrs... Any idea where we may be jetting off to? (If you know, please don't give it away :) Our friends were thinking that maybe we were adopting a baby! YIKES Thanks for looking - Be Sweet!

I will be back tomorrow with another clue :)

Supplies Used:

Spellbinders™ S4-138 Petite Ovals LG, S4-111 Classic Scalloped Ovals LG, S4-242 Big Scalloped Borderabilities® Petite, W-001 The Wizard™
Stamps: JustRite Stampers Breath of Spring Borders & Centers, Stitched with Love Borders & Centers
Paper: Creative Imaginations DP, Papertrey Ink
Ink: Copic R46 Strong Red, W-3 Warm Grey, Melissa Frances Rub-ons, Memento, Ranger
