Cheery Lynn Designs Red, White and Blue

 
The challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs is Red, White and Blue.  I began my card with a white card stock base, 5 5/8 inch square.  To this I added the largest die from the new Castle Edge Square set, die cut from blue card stock.  To this I added a lovely new DP from Gina K Designs.  To create my sentiment panel I layered these dies starting from the bottom up: blue Scalloped Circle, white Vienna Waltz Circle Boutique Stacker, red Circle Stacker, white Silver Circle Stacker and finally the new Live Laugh Love from blue card stock.  I used pop dots between the Vienna Waltz and red layer and then adhered it to my card base.


I got out some of my older flower dies for this card. Judy's Blooms and Cherry  Blossom are very easy to use, simply pinch the petals together to create some dimension.  I die cut these from Cryogen metallic paper, adding color accents with my Copic markers.  To the center of these 3 larger flowers, I added two orange starbursts from the Embellishment #1 die set.  I added two red Miniature Roses as well as some green Flourish Leaves.
