DDIC #31



HERE is the link to the picture that Lori, our Fearless Leader chose to give us for inspiration this time.


I just loved all the Patriotic colors, and what a group of wonderful items to include for Labor day, or for the 4th of July, which is a bit closer.


The blue containers, white branches, and the white background with the RED flower was very intriguing to me. You know, of course, how much I love anything RED!, so that can't be a surprise.








Here is my card. The blue dp shows up a little darker than it really is. It's exactly the same color as the centers of the Hero Arts flower. The stem is embossed in white, to compare to the branches in the picture. I added a row of punching at the bottom, in circles, like the life preserver, and kept that theme with the RED buttons.
Please feel free to join us, and be sure to check the entries of the DT. You can find their blogs on my sidebar. See you in two weeks!
