Crafting By Designs Blog Hop Time!!!

Welcome to the Crafting By Designs Hop! If you arrived from the amazing Julia, you're on the right track! You can start with Doris if you get lost.  Our theme is Patriotic or flag colors and I was thrilled with this theme! I've NEVER done a patriotic card before so this was a new experience for me!

I used Papertrey Ink stamps.  This is a set that I've had forever, but rarely used.  It was fun to break it out and color the basket.  I used Copic Markers and I paper pieced in the stars, using adhesive foam to make them pop out a bit.  I finished them off with Stickles.

Let me know what you think!

Your next stop on the Hop is the incredibly talented Cindy!!!

Stamps: PTI
