Red, White and Blue

CSDesigns has a Red White and Blue challenge on the Challenge Blog.

For my first project as Guest Designer for the month of July, I used the exquisite Solitare Lace and Jewels to create my Red, White and Blue card.

The image was coloured using Watercolour pencils and then blended with Artists White Spirits. This was then matted on Blue and Red cardstock and fixed to a white card. I diverted from my usual almost CAS cards and added a feather and some crumpled organza ribbon, and last but not least a touch of glitter with my new Stardust Gelly Roll Pen...what a fun pen to use:


 I am adding a close-up of my card: 



I am going to enter a few challenges where my card will fit the bill.

Well, here is the list of the fun challenges I entered:
