RRR Challenge #50 is Red, White & Blue with Ribbon

Time for the Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge! I love it when a challenge fits what I want to do, and this one is a match made in heaven.

The challenge is to use red, white, and blue with ribbon and since I am making AnyHero cards, this was a no-brainer.  Over at Operation Write Home*, the current card drive, Duty.Honor.Cards is underway. At least 5% of our cards need to be AnyHero cards, so I have a couple of posts that focus specifically on our heroes.  To see the first one, please scroll down to my previous post.

I have always adored Andrea Ewen’s cards and wish I had her sense of style.  She uses a lot of flourishes that I fell in love with when seeing her cards.  I won some ZVA Creative flourishes and have had so much fun using them.  You will see that I used two on this card, but they are large so I find I snip them apart to fit my card, and of course I get to use them on a lot more cards!

Stamper’s Best is where I got the flag stamp. It is one of their OWH fundraiser stamps and features selected deep etch rubber art made especially to assist the fundraising efforts of OWH. They donate $1 to Operation Write Home for each stamp sold that is designated with the OWH logo icon!!

I masked the flag to get the two colors and love how it turned out. I just need to get one of those tools that helps you place the stamp in the same spot.

The sentiment stamps are from Verve’s American Hero set which I find I use a LOT! I just love that set.

I also made this card for:
Mynnette’s Spread the L-O-V-E challenge:

*Operation Write Home: Supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.
