STV's Center Stage Spotlight Group Hop -Color Challenge

Hi there, glad to see you hopping with us (-:

For this hop, we were challenged to use the colors
Red, White, Blue 
and you should have come from the very artistic blog of Lori McAree

I don't send July 4th cards or have any birthdays that week, so I didn't use the Independence Day theme.
Hope you like what I came up with using the beloved set ...

Birds n Blossoms by Theresa Momber.

Copics used: R37, 43, 85, 89...BG000, 07, 75...E07...C1
Cardstock is GKD's Cherry Red and the Star paper is a freebie from GKD (check out the Freebie Tab on STV) and GKD ribbons
Image lightly sponged with GKD - Powder Blue

and sooooooo, since I had everything out...Card #2
 Copics used: R29. 89. B37, 110
Memento Nautical Blue for sentiment, sponging with GKD Cherry Red
Viva Pearl Pen - Ice White
my own doodling around edges

Your next hop is over to the very talented blog of Kay Simmons

Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on 
Tuesday, June 25.
Enjoy the hop! Hope we inspired you!

hugs,
