Patriotic


The Skipping Stones Design Team is thrilled to be teaming up with the fabulous designers from The Ribbon Carousel to bring you a patriotic blog hop! My card today features a custom background made with white paper, some distress stains and the script stamp from Skipping Stones Design's Garden Kiss Stamp.


Lets talk prizes! Hop along and leave some blog love for our designers for a chance to win one of 2 great prizes! The Ribbon Carousel will be giving away a ribbon carousel and Skipping Stones Design will be giving away a stamp set of the winner's choice! Winners will be announced on Saturday at 8:00 PM EST!



Remember that Skipping Stones Design has an inspiration challenge over on the blog as well. For the month of July we are doing inspiration pictures instead of sketches!

  14. Hi Karen! I love this card - it echoes the constitution with the old parchment paper and stain aging - the simple color reminder in the ribbons . . . it's really quite remarkable! You are amazing!
