A Patriotic Card

I was in a town about 30 minutes from my house to watch my son play a baseball game. While they were warming up, I found a little craft/scrapbooking store and did some shopping. I found the paper for this card which I thought would make a great patriotic card without being the traditional red, white and blue. I started with a sketch from CPS Card Sketches but I may have changed it too much to submit this for their weekly challenge!


This card is for the following challenges:

CPS Card Sketch
Corosive Challenge: Something that represents your country
ABC Challenge: U for United States
Belli Blog: Patriotic Themed
One Stop Craft Challenge: Stars and Stripes


  1. I love the card. I like that you didn't use the obvious colors -- which is hard to do when you're talking about a patriotic-themed card. Nice job and Happy 4th!!!

  2. This is such a cute image, I love the colours you have used. Your card fits the theme perfectly.
    Thanks for joining the ABC challenge this week.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
