Red White and Blue

Good morning to you all!  Today sees the start of a new challenge at Delightful Challenges and the theme this week is:


Here is my card:

I have used Walking the Dog from Digital Delights available here.  The sentiment is from the Digital Delight Birthday Sentiment Set available here.  I coloured the image with my Copics.  The sentiment was cut using SB long Rectangles and matted on Long Scalloped Rectangles.  The papers are Digital Delights Sail Away Digital Paper Set available here and on sale at the moment for only $2!! I cut the papers into a fishtail by hand as I don't have any fishtail dies.  The balloon was made with a Lil Inker die and the borders made with my Cheery Lynn Tiny Expandable borders. Card Candi, coloured with Copics, and twine from my stash.

Our sponsor this week is:

with the prize being a $25.00 store certificate!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
The Perfect Sentiment - Red White and Blue
Digi Makeover Challenge - All Tied Up
Get Inky - Red White and Blue
ABC - Red White and Blue
DRS - The Letter B (Birthday - Boy - Blue - Balloon)

A big welcome to my newest follower Amy!  Thanks for looking today - see you tomorrow!! Take care xx
