Red, White and Blue for You

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps.  This week is a Designer's Choice Challenge and Donna has chosen: Red, White & Blue

And here is the card I created:
I just love this Flower Power background stamp!  It's so pretty and it looks fabulous no matter what colors you use it with.  This is actually quite a pretty color combo.  I love the red and the light blue and when I threw in the darker blue; it really added a lot of interest and depth.  I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and finished off the flowers with pearls in various colors and blue enamel dots.
Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this challenge (if you are American, it will definitely make you feel patriotic!).  And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your entire order coupon code over in my lift sidebar.
