PaperBlooms Challenge #8 & Give Away!!

This weeks challenge is " Remembering Memorial Day" we are to use the colors Red White and Blue and it does not have to be patiriotic.
How often do we think of the ones that have fought and or died for our freedom which seems to be taken for granted by so many?

Paper- Paper Pazazz, Quote- comp generated,Corners are SU! and embossed with CuttleBug- Swiss Dots, Stars- Wild Card Cricut cart @ 2" and embossed with gold.

Well this is my last week as the Guest Designer and I have had a wonderful time seeing what everyone has created. I do hope you all hop on over and join us each week or whenever you can.
I am going to have a drawing (DH will draw a name for me on the 27th) for one lucky person to receive these BEAUTIFUL hand made Blooms by Leah. You can see more by her HERE.Her work is FANTASTIC and she takes custom orders also! I hope you take the time to check out her shop. All you need to do to be entered in the drawing is create an item and link it to this weeks challenge HERE and leave me a comment letting me know. I will post the lucky winner on my Blog the morning of the 27th so be sure to come back to see if it is you :-)

This pic does not do them justice as the colors are much brighter in person!! There are 9 total!!

Just found another challenge this works for: Fun-Frilled Celebrating Red, White and Blue

Right Rose I am up for this challenge lol. I may have to do my card based on Australian Patriotism but the colours will be the same.

This challenge was fun, the nautical theme came to mind right away, so I dusted off my boatloads of love and went to sea.. I just wish I hadnt left my paper blooms on shore.. :)

Lovely flowers. So tender colours.

Unfortunately blue, red and white are not our patriotic colours and I will pass the challenge.
