Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #24

     Woot!  Woot!  It's a holiday week!  Over at Joan's Gardens, Joan has cooked up a new challenge for us.  In case you have not guessed, it includes the colors of Red, white, and blue!

Here are the requirements:
*Use the colors red, white, and blue  (yep, I did that)
*Use a tag  (circle tag with brad)
*Use stripes  (they are in my background paper)
*Make it a celebration card  ( I am celebrating the 4th)

     Okay, now that I think I have everything covered, let me get to my explanation.  I used all bits and pieces to create this card.  My firework, boy, and dog stamps are all from my unmounted stash and I have no clue who they belong to.  I want to say that the boy and dog at RBBB, and they are out of business.  My inside and outside sentiments are from Studio G.  The striped paper is an unknown.  The silver stars are from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and I cut them apart.  The red bandana trim is from 7 Gypsys.  I used circle and oval Spellbinders dies.  Inks are Copic marker for coloring, and SU! and VersaMagic for sponging.

     Hope everyone is doing okay with this heat and bad weather.  Still sending prayers for the victims of the fires and flooding.  Hang in there, and I will see you soon.
