Red, White and Blue Center Step Card

Hi Everyone,

Today I want to share with you a fun Red, White and Blue Center Step Card that I created to help celebrate U.S. Independence Day.    Here in Canada we celebrate  July 1st which is Canada Day for us and just as important, Canada Day marks the first long weekend of the Summer!


Here is a closer view.  I thought the Cutie Fringe II flowers made just the perfect patriotic flower for this card : )


Here’s a list of the dies used for this project:

B128 – Patriotic Swag
B209 – Pinwheel Doily w/Angel Wing
B256 – Cutie Fringe II
B304 – Ivy Strip
DL130 – Dutch Doily Rectangle Frame
XM-5 – XM Scalloped Circle

I hope you can find some time to visit the challenge this week and put in your entry where the theme is Red, White and Blue!  With your entry you will have a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs!

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
