PWC316 - Red, White & Blue

Happy Wednesday!  You've made it to hump day so there's a new Paper Pretties challenge PWC316 for you.  This week the challenge theme is "Red, White and Blue inspired by the Fourth of July".  If you play along and post your card or project on the Paper Pretties Challenge Blog you'll be in the draw for a chance to win 5 digis of your choice from the Paper Pretties store.

For the longest time I was not a fan of this color combo but it's growing on me and I'm liking how it looks on this card.  

This card features a stamp from the "Sweets for the Sweet - EZ Mount" set.  The set contains images of several baking items including a rolling pin and mixer as well as a few sentiments.   It reminds me of Christmas and the holidays because of all the baking that gets done then.   You could use the stamps to decorate your goodie packages.  There's so many more things you can do with your stamps besides make a greeting card.  By the way if you're thinking about picking up this stamp here's a little tidbit that might give you that extra push - during the month of June all orders over $15 will include 5 yards of ribbon (our choice) free.  You can also save 20% on your order using promo code JUNE20.  

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Sweets for the Sweet - EZ Mount"
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black and Stampin' Up Cherry Cobbler
paper - Neenah Classic Crest Brilliant White card stock; Stampin' Up "Whisper White" and "Midnight Muse" card stock and DSP Patterns Pack "Regals"; Bazzill "Maraschino" card stock; October Afternoon "Modern Homemaker" pad
miscellaneous - copics; Spellbinder's "Oval", "Scalloped Oval" and "Tag Shape Three"; eyelet lace; ruffled gingham ribbon; baker's twine; apple button; red pearls
