Patriotic Please - Banana Split Sunday Challenge

Good Morning! I hope everyone had a wonderful July 4th!

Today's Banana Split Challenge is all about July 4th, but we're carrying it beyond the holiday. The Challenge is to create something Patriotic. It goes really well with the Cards for Heroes organization too :) I'm working on my 25 + 2 challenge and I'm almost there. I would really like to see just how many time I can complete the challenge, because if you go to the website and read all the comments about the program, I'm pretty sure you'll want to participate too. Here's the website - Cards for Heroes.

Okay, on to my card. I love red, white and blue! It is a really simple card to put together. Funny thing, Deb and I both used the same stamp sets for our cards :) Sgt Chicken and May Journaling Spot.

Stamps: Sgt Chicken, May Journaling Spot,
Paper: Bazzill and dp from my "collection"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo black, Copics, Inkssentials white pen, Versamark Dazzle, Versafine Onyx black (sentiment)
Other: red satin ribbon, pop dots

Be sure to check out the design team blogs too.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
