CSS Color Blog Hop

Hi there! Welcome to our Color Challenge Blog Hop , Carolina has brought us this fabulous challenge and wants us to use Red, White and Blue. Thanks Carolina!!
"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."

You should have arrived here from super creative  Joy's Blog.
For my card I used " By The Sea 2" stamp set illustrated by Theresa Momber from Gina K. Designs. I really love this set !!
I changed the birds around a bit by slipping a piece of paper under the stamped image to keep from all the image stamping, giving it a different look.






Here is the same card with a different background.

Stamp set: By The Sea 2
Pure Luxury Card Stock
