PWC265 - Red, White and Blue

This week's Paper Pretties Challenge PWC265 is quite timely, it's "Red, White and Blue".  With tomorrow being the 4th of July I'll  have to do eeny, meenie, miney, moe to decide who to give this one to.  I've got a couple friends and a husband with birthdays on the 4th of July.  You may not have any friends or relatives with birthdays on the 4th of July but you probably know somebody that's having a bar-be-cue.  Since it's customary to bring a dish with you to the cook out why not attach a card to it.  You can go all out and pick up a decorated plate or container for your dish.  There's usually a selection of inexpensive dishes at Michael's, TJ Maxx and Home Goods.  I'm sure there are other places you can pick one up without  breaking your budget.  I like to do that so that I don't have to think about getting it back and the hostess doesn't have to worry about who left which dish behind.  

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Holiday Sweets 1" and "Birthday Sentiments"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black" and "Nautical Blue"
paper - Bazzill "Grenadine Red", "Snow White" and "Sunbeam" card stock; Recollections "Blue Gingham" patterned paper
miscellaneous - copics; EK Success "Swiss Cheese" border punch; Spellbinder's "Circle" and "Inverted Scalloped Circle" dies; bling; Viva Glitter Liner "Yellow Quartz"; ribbon
