The first challenge for the year on 365 Cards is to use the following colour combination to make a card: red, white, chocolate, teal, and natural brown (the name of it has momentarily slipped my mind!)
I used a large scrap triangle of deep red and another of deep blue for the base. I was going to use just ONE flag stamp in the bottom right-hand corner but it looked a bit silly, so I stamped some more and put a whole row of them down the middle of the card. I tried adding some punched chocolate stars in the right-hand corner but as soon as they were glued down I knew I hated the way they looked! It was too late to peel them off, so I covered that corner up with another triangle of chocolate brown cardstock, and I made that my sentiment block. The little stars are hand-drawn. Add a USA sticker in the top corner and voila... one patriotic card to stash away for my Summer shipment to Operation Write Home.
