Red, White and Embossed

Hey everyone!

To my US friends: hope you are having a glorious long weekend and enjoyed the July 4 fireworks!

I’ll be hiking somewhere in Denali National Park when you guys read this. Will be fun to come back to all your comment love 🙂

So today is the Verve July Inspiration hop! You should have come here from Stacey‘s blog. If you want to begin at the beginning, the fun starts at the Verve blog.

The hop theme is Red, White and YOU! We were challenged to use Red and White plus any other color of our choice! I stayed in the same color palette and used a soft peach color as the third one.

Here is the inspiration pic.


And here is my card with the theme! I used the flowers from Button Best and the sentiment from Be Blessed sets!


The diagonal strips are embossed pieces of white cardstock. I used Jennifer McGuire’s emboss-and-ink technique here to give them some beautiful coloring!

Here is another closer look at the card…


Thats all for the hop folks! Do check out the other Divas blogs who are hopping today! They are a seriously talented lot!
