July Mingle Card


The theme for the July Mingles is Patriotic or Red/white/blue. What a fun color combo to work with!!
Challenge #61 at Tilda's Town Challenge this week is "Anything Goes".  Love that challenge!

I used Tilda with Daisy for the image and colored her with Copics.
The card base is Stampin' Up Brilliant Blue, layered with GP 110 white and a gorgeous red and white design paper from lily bee design Handmade 6x6 tiny tablet, a gift from my friend Lillian Abrams.

The ribbon is from my stash.  The roses were from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Tilda is mounted on SU Brilliant Blue cardstock.  Lacy Squares from Spellbinders was used to cut the image panel.  The image is popped up on SU dimensionals.

Here is the open view showing the easel panel.

I lined up the design on the paper and the red ribbon so they would match.  I added some tiny roses to help keep the front in place when opened.  The dark sentiment panel can be easily written on with a silver or white gel pen.

I am entering this card in the Tilda's Town Challenge  Anything Goes this week.
It will also be my July Mingle card which goes to Dawn Kuhn.

Thank  you for stopping by and sharing the clean, crisp look of red, white and blue with me!!
