Blogger's Challenge - Happy Memorial Day


This week's blogger's challenge is to make something patriotic.. Of course, once I started working on it, several ideas came to mind. So.... Here are two ideas that I had.



The card on the left is made with Fifth Avenue Floral set. I stamped the flowers in real red and brilliant blue. The rose is watercolored with real red watercolor crayon.

The card on the right is made with Petal Pizazz. I added one more color in with YoYo Yellow.

Off to the Beach!! The sun has come out and the rain has gone away.

Enjoy your Holiday!

Marilyn

Lucky you to head off to the beach, hope you had a good time. I'm playing catch up today on commenting. Both your cards were nice but I really like the Rose Flag card. What a great idea.
