Paper Sweeties July Inspiration Challenge #33 - Red, White & Blue

Welcome to the July Inspiration Challenge for Paper Sweeties!  The theme this month is "Red, White & Blue"!  And as always there is a lovely $20.00 Gift Certificate and a Guest Designer spot available to the winner of the challenge.  We would love to see you participate!

Here is my take on these patriotic inspiration colors:

I used the sweet Emma paper doll and dressed her for the 4th of July using the outfit from "Life is a Picnic" and the flip flops from "At the Beach".  I used a white gel pen to add the star to the front of her top.

A red and white gingham panel forms the background for the card with a navy blue embossed star panel to add texture.  The sentiment panel is from the "Beautiful" stamp set as is the "Celebrate" sentiment.  Some "Apple Pie" red, white & blue twine was used for the bows in her hair and to embellish the card.  Some marshmallow sequins finish the card nicely.

There is a lot more to see today so I will send you on your way.....
