Red, White and Blue Challenge CSS Inspiration Hop 6-18-03

Welcome to another Inspiration Challenge from the CSS team. This time it is a Red, White, and Blue color challenge. These are perfect summer colors, don't you agree? If you arrived from     's blog, you are in the right place!
I used Beth Silaika's Lovely Ladybug Stamp set from Gina K. Design's.  I used the GKD Navy cardstock as my base, with a white embossed BG.  I used an embossing folder for texture on the white. The printed paper and the touch of ribbon is also from Gina's store. The Red Hot cardstock adds my red base. You should have arrived from Kay's blog.









 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.  Now off you go to see Joy's beautiful work!  Thanks so much for visiting today!
