Say Charge Girls

This card came about because my BFF Dana told me about an MFT challenge on Splitcoast that I seemed to have overlooked. Not sure how that happened but I'm happy she set me on the straight and narrow. {wink!}

The challenge is the Who's That Girl challenge #18. I don't own the featured set (gasp!) so I decided to use my Say Charge! girls instead. The second part of the challenge is to use patriotic red, white and blue colours...although my red is more like burgundy. 

I stamped the girls with Memento black onto Gina K pure luxury, then I stamped them again onto three patterned papers from the Making Memories Paperie line. The image is coloured with a combination of paper piecing and copics. I added a sparkly blue jean Bella dot to the center of the flower.

The card base is Gina K 120lb pure luxury, followed by a piece of Bravo Burgundy which I ran through my Birds & Swirls cuttlebug folder. Next I used my threading water border punch on a strip of the blue patterned paper from Making Memories Paperie line. That's layered onto a strip of Brocade Blue.  The ribbon is from my stash...not sure who makes it, and I added a spiral clip from my old Hodgepodge set to the image. 

So friends...let's all Say Charge! and stimulate this economy with more stamps!  :)

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm happy to boost the economy anytime with stamping! I think I like that colour combo better than a real red, white and blue.

I love the color scheme of this card! The stamp is adorable, too, and I like your layout design. This card just shouts "Let's go, girls!" Very fun.
