Celebrate Your Birthday! PPA136




Ahhh red, white and blue - nautical or patriotic?  Since I get seasick just watching The Deadliest Catch I decided patriotic was the way to go!  With a bit of sparkly silver this card is perfect for a July birthday! 


Show us your red, white and blue this week at Pals Paper Arts~!

Fantastic Linda! My favorite of the samples. Great job!

Sara said...

Love your stars, Linda! "Deadliest Catch" makes me woozey, too (because of the crazy chances they take).

What a fantastic card (I have some friends/family who are retired military and they'd love to receive something like this). Definitely going to CASE! :)

Thanks for sharing (and for your kind comment on my card for FMS). I'm a teacher, too (temporarily "retired" while I have kids at home). Love your blog -- I'll be back! :)

Warmly,
Sara

Linda, tying the stars together was masterful. Red, white and blue demands something graphic and this card certainly delivers. Stunning.

Love your card, Linda! I'm going to have to pull out my catalog to see where you got the polka dot paper...that is one of my favorite elements of the card. Thanks for visiting me and commenting on my card.

Linda, I have seen your card before and admired it. I am now going to pin it so that I can use it for inspiration. I just love the red/white/blue together. I have a July baby and think that he would love it.
