Together We Stand Patriotic Card for RRR Summer Flowers Challenge
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! It’s time for another fabby challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon. Since it’s almost the 4th of July, I created this Together We Stand patriotic card using my new ribbon crush and Authentique’s Honor paper collection.
I went on a treasure hunt in the RRR vaults looking for great summer ribbon choices. Since I’d already ordered this paper, I was looking for the perfect play pal to go along with it. Well, I think I found it in this gorgeous Navy Blue Silky Crush Ribbon. It ties the most gorgeous bows!
I topped this textured beauty with a jeweled Petaloo Flower that sparkles and shines like a 4th of July firework display. To add to the fun, I created a little paper rosette with my die cutting machine. ( “rose” ette..flower challenge…get it?) Natural burlap string is looped up beneath the rosette and tied onto that glittery l’il clothespin that’s holding the together we stand sentiment strip.
God Bless America
Ok…I have to talk just a little bit about these gorgeous kiddoes in the focal image. Don’t they just make your heart happy? I imagine they are singing a rousing chorus of God Bless America. I used to love singing all the patriotic tunes while swinging on the back yard swingset. I’m sure the whole neighborhood could hear my friends and me belting out one tune after another. I actually used to know all the words to all the various Military Anthems, and boy, did we love to sing ’em!
Here’s a peeky at the inside of my Together We Stand card. I created a pocket and then filled it with this stamped and stitched little tag.
I hope you will all play along in the summer flower challenge. Fireworks look like flowers in the sky, right? Wishing you all a very happy, safe and fun 4th of July!
Now go get your craft on!
Oh my goodness, your card is total vintage patriotic awesomeness!! I love the focal image and the wonderful, shabby layers. Everywhere you look there is something special to catch your eye. Happy Independence Day!!
A beautiful creation!! Love the pretty ribbon and flowers.Very Festive!!
Have a Safe & Happy 4th of July!
This is so reminiscent of one of my favorites since childhood, Norman Rockwell, but oh so much more colorful and full of goodies to look at! Even the tag and pocket inside are as fun as can be. Wishing you and yours a wonderful Independence Day, Kathy!
