Pals Paper Arts 207

Hello!  Team 2 is back this week with a color challenge for  PPA 207.  Follow the link to play.

Here are this week's colors:

(I substituted Night of Navy because Midnight Muse is retired and no longer available).

I live in Southern New England and it is not uncommon to see wooden 'flags' made from old fence pickets hung on buildings for outdoor decoration.  I thought it would be fun to try to create one from card stock using this week's colors.

There is not much to explain about this card.  I stamped some Whisper White cards stock with Real Red ink using the Hardwood stamp.  I did the same with Whisper White Craft Ink on Real Red card stock.  Then I cut 'pickets'.  I stamped Night of Navy on Night of Navy Card stock for the field of blue under the stars.  The stars were punched from the Itty Bitty Accents star punch from Whisper While that was stamped in Night of Navy with the Hardwood stamp.

The sentiment is from Endless Birthday Wishes.

All Products Stampin' Up!
