Yikes - I'm entering a challenge!

Hi All,

To help with my goal of using up my stash this year, I have decided to attempt some "Use It Tuesday" challenges.  Other than crops and challenges on the Black Cat US forum, where I am very comfortable, this is my first challenge.  This week's challenge is to use your favorite team's colors as inspiration.  Well, both the Red Sox and the Patriots team colors are red, white and blue.  What a nice change from all the Holiday projects I have been doing.  Here is my card:

Supply list:
Paper - straight out of my scrap bin - various unknown manufacturers
Ribbon - Celebrate It brand from Michael's
Tulip die cut, ovals and lettering-  my own designs using Make-the-Cut Software and cut with my 15" Black Cat Cougar, using the detail blade and holder. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Note:  The red card base was made with paper from an unused scrap book kit that DD 2 pulled out of the trash can after DD 1 threw it away!  It had never been used at all.  I reclaimed all of the paper, (enough for a multitude of cards) and DD 2 grabbed the stickers.  I'm so glad she was paying attention!


  1. It's a lovely card. The tulip die-cut is charming.

  2. What a great card, so striking! Glad you joined us at UIT this week!

  3. That's a great idea to help you use your stash and to make a lovely card, great use of colour and nice clean image :)

  4. Great job!!! I like your tulip file too. Glad your dd was paying attention. Way to go!


Your kind comments are very much appreciated!
