Waving My Flag

I was so excited when I saw this week's challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ, and I knew I wanted to make a card with a flag. Then, when I saw the challenge at Just Rite Stampers, I just had to combine challenges.  There are SO MANY amazing challenge blogs out there.  I'd like to enter them all.   Here is the card I came up with to meet the requirements of each challenge I'm entering.

The picture didn't turn out the greatest, but you can see the basic idea.I used a three-layer chipboard flag that I painted and covered in Basic Grey patterned papers, and then embellished.  Here is the information on the challenges I'm entering this week.

I really enjoyed combining these super fun challenges.  I'd love to hear your comments about the card, and I'm also looking forward to visiting your blog to see what you've created this week.  I appreciate you stopping by.  Have a blessed day.

My Cup Runneth Over,

Karen
