Friday's JustRite Challenge!

It is time for JustRite's Friday Challenge! This challenge was two fold.....using THIS sketch and to use red, white, and blue in honor of the upcoming 4th of July holiday. I used JustRite's Thinking of You set and colored it in with my Copic markers. The border was stamped in Pure Poppy by Papertrey Ink. I used Spellbinder's to cut the ovals. The paper is Papertrey Ink and Bazill. The star paper is really old and I have no idea who the manufacturer is.

I did a bit of machine stitching and used part of the sentiment from this set. I isolated the word, Love and only inked that one word. I used a Spellbinder's tag to cut it out.

I added a piece of satin ribbon and some baker's twine to finish it off! I can't believe it is Friday already and that I have already had 2 weeks off....this summer is flying by! We have a busy weekend planned.....birthday parties for my niece and nephew and a graduation party. : )
Have a great one!!!

OMG, your card is fabulous! I love the design and all of the details. And red/white/blue is hard to do (outside of the patriotic theme), but you rocked it. Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. I'm glad you commented - because I hopped on over here and am amazed at your creations. Definitely subscribed!

I love all the new stamps that JustRite is coming out with! Your cards are all just amazing, too.

Thank you for stopping by my craft blog and leaving me a sweet message. I've been a little busy with my daughter (who is entering into a home-bound hospice this weekend)so I haven't been able to keep up with blogs like I used to, but it was a lot of fun to come back and see all the wonderful projects you've made and to see pictures of your sweet daughter. Congrats on her graduation. :)
