Bloggers Challenge -- Red White And Blue

Lisa is always so good at being right on with the themes for our Blogger's Challenges.  This week we are doing Red White and Blue.  I had lots of fun making this fun flower pot with candles.  And the card is just using up more of those pre-cut scraps I have laying around.

ETA: I thought this was a good idea for a giveaway gift for Party Lite distributors,
I do not intend to burn like this so don't worry, lol!

 
I found this tin in the dollar spot at Target.  So cute, matches with the flowers from the flower folds die so nicely, don't you think? I am so glad I finally got this die.  I have been making so many things with it.  At mommy and me we made flip flops, barrettes, hair bands, pins and baseball caps with it! I will take pictures of the stuff when I finally get it all unpacked.

Stamps: None
Paper: Real Red, Brilliant Blue, Whisper White
Ink: None
Other: crimper, ribbon, flower folds die, candles, pop dots, sucker sticks

Now for the fast and simple card.

Stamps: Four Square
Paper: Brilliant Blue, Bashful Blue, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Brilliant Blue
Other: small flower punch from punch pack, ribbon, rub on, embossing folder, pretties kit

Be sure to click on the logo on my sidebar to see what the rest of the talented ladies in the group are doing for their red white and blue challenge!  I sure it will be fabulous.

Hope you have a fabulous holiday weekend!
