Fourth of July Flowers

Howdy all!  Happy Fourth of July to all my American friends (a day early!)! 

It’s the first Friday of the month so that means that Power Poppy has a brand new “Power & Spark” challenge for you.  This month we’re all about Hang Some Paper
… in other words we want to see you use at least 3 different patterned papers on your creations this month.  Yup… we all know you have that giant stash of paper sitting there close by that’s screaming to be used!!!  So use it!

For further challenge details and how to enter a card to WIN a free stamp set this month, click here!

Since my US friends and family are all decked out in red, white and blue this weekend, I thought I’d deck my card out in the same colours too!  I used some fun nautical themed papers.

I even paper pieced my three blooms from the Dynamic Duos: Glads & Gerberas stamp set…

Now… check out what the rest of the extremely talented Bloom Brigade designer blogs have in store for you with all those fun patterned papers...
