Patriotic Card - Let's Celebrate

Hi! 

It's Thursday and there is a new inspiration challenge this week for Inspired By Stamping Inspirational Challenge.  

Here is my take....
I started with a Kraft card base (The Kraft Outlet)  I used some patriotic paper scraps to add some color to the top and bottom of my card.   A length of white crochet trim was added to the red patterned paper. A Postcard was created using IBS Vintage Postcards adding a red rhinestone flourish and some stars for a patriotic feel. 
The sentiment Let's Celebrate from Inspired By Stamping Big Wishes was stamped in Navy ink. A length of blue grosgrain ribbon was wrapped around horizontally to the card front and tied in a bow adding a red paper flower, button, twine, and a memory stick pin.  

Here is the IBSIC inspiration photo. Joanna wants to see Red, White, and Blue.
I am personally adding this to The Kraft Journal Challenge this week - Anything Goes and Really Reasonable Ribbon - Red, White and Blue plus ribbon!

Thank you for stopping by!
