Red, White and Blue

Hello! I hope you are keeping cool in this sweltering heat! I had to walk somewhere at 10:30 this morning and it felt like a 100 degrees already!! It is getting close to July 4th! I can't believe it is right around the corner. I am entering this card in the Impression Obsession challenge -- Red, White and Blue and also in Top Tip Tuesday's challenge -- Stars and Stripes. I used the Impression Obsession Porch with Flag stamp E1726. My tip is this -- to give the card a little more emphasis, I used Flower Soft on the flowers by the porch and used my distress tool around the oval, then sponged blue ink on it. Thanks for dropping by. Have a good day!

The addition of the flower soft is just the icing on the cake, giving more texture and depth to an already lovely card.
