Patriotic and Little Girls

This week The Color Throwdown gave us these colors: Navy, White and another color of your choosing. I loved this challenge so much I ended up making 2 cards for it!

My first card used Night of Navy, Whisper White, and Cherry Cobbler. I used the CB folder Distressed Stripes and some Riding Hood Red ribbon to bring it all together. I love this stamp from SU. I'm a Navy vet, my husband is retired Navy, and I love anything patriotic!
Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Land of the Free
Paper: Night of Navy, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Ink: Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Riding Hood Red ribbon, CB Distressed Stripes folder, sponge, dimensionals

My 2nd card incorporates this weeks Clean and Simple challenge from Splitcoast, along with The Color Throwdown. This time I used Night of Navy, Whisper White and Daffodil Delight. How sweet is this image of 2 little girls? Its funny that I like it so much because I am SOOO not a girly-girl, LOL.

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: The Nicest Things
Paper: Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Night of Navy DSP
Ink: Black StazOn, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizazz, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Night of Navy ribbon, Scallop Trim Border Punch, dimensionals



  1. Both cards are wonderful! I'm so glad you enjoyed the challenge! Thanks for joining us for the Color Throwdown!

  2. Where can I find the CB distressed folder?
    Thanks Kathy T
    I love this card and may use it as thank you cards for my son's Eagle Scout event -He worked with our local veterans and comunities and collected old flags downtown and he had a program and then a flag retiring ceremony -very humbling.

  3. Hi Kathy...I got the distressed stripes folder from EBay...I think it was 4.99 or so, it wasnt a bad price at all! I think it would be a great card to use as a thank you. Your son did a great project, you must be so proud! As a veteran I thank him!
