A bit of bling...

The challenge over at Friday's Sketches had a sketch that I have included below. My Time to Craft also had a challenge to create your card using no (ZERO) designer paper - EGADS! And Three Clovers had a challenge using red, white, and blue... So, here is what I put together.







I have been in need of some cheering up today, and this lady stamp (American Art Stamps)always makes me smile. I looked for a small blue flower for her hat, but didn't have any small enough. Hope you like her. Have a nice holiday.

GO CARDS!
