Here Comes Summer!

I have been having a FANTASTIC summer! I am so glad to have a break from school and to be able to hide in the basement and craft my little heart out! It has just been really relaxing! And today being of course, Digistamps4Joy has a new challenge for you!!!!! And that challenge would be......

Red, White, and Blue!

Now, knowing that there are many different countries besides the USA, and not everyone celebrates the 4th of July, I decided to step out of my boundaries and interpret a little differently. And this is what I came up with!!!


My favorite thing about this card is that most of the card actually isn't paper. It's........ FABRIC!!! I couldn't think of anything better to use to make a amazing red, white, and blue card! And I loved it! 

I did this card for a challenge on:
Supplies:
Stamps: Digistamps4Joy
Paper: AC
Other: Sugar and Spice Fabric, Copics, Nestabilites, SU! Brad, Memento Inks, Sewing Machine
