It's a RED, WHITE & BLUE weekend . . .

. . . here in the wonderful U.S.A.!
And, with so many fun R/W/B challenges out there this week ... I just HAD to join in the fun!

By using this ADORABLE Crafty Secrets image from their 'Childhood Vintage Image Booklet', I picked up the colors I wanted but in a little less patriotic manner.  My  blue/white floral background paper is from Paper Pizazz, and it's been in my stash for probably 5 years!  The red & white polka dot is from the scrap bin and worked perfectly for today's card.  Sorry to say this was the end of my roll of blue/white striped grosgrain ribbon ... guess I'll be 'in search of' another spool on my next shopping trip!   I used a rubber stamp from a Hero Arts set for the sentiment ... looks like this little guy and his puppy friend are having a special day at the fishing hole!

Let's see what other fabulous challenges I can share in today . . .
