#115 Red, white, blue

I loved making this card for the challenge over at One Stitch at a Time. I had to work with the digi papers of Oase and I chose this set from Stitchybear Digital Stamp Store. I chose the Poppy image by Stitchy to go with the papers. This image is a black silhouette and I thought it would be perfect to go with the red, white and blue papers of Oase.

The card blank is a large square from Craft UK. I cut the poppy image with a Spellbinders rectangle nestie and then matted it on to the scalloped nestie. I used Oase's blue paper to cut the scalloped nestie. The red, white and blue burst was matted on to the red paper from the same set. They're all beautiful papers. The only embellishments needed were three square red gems in top right and bottom left corners to complete this design. The gems were from my stash and I've had them forever!

Check the One Stitch at a Time challenge blog for the prize information.
