I am so excited to have been invited to join a new blog hop!!! The
Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop happens the first Wednesday of every month!!!! There are some very talented ladies on this hop, so be sure to follow the links & check them all out!!! You get some great ideas & inspirations!!!

This month the challenge is Red, White & Blue-appropriately so!!! After all, the 4th of July celebrates the birthday of the good ole' USA!!!! So I thought a nice All-American birthday card would be appropriate!

If you knew me well, you'd know I love anything nautical! This girl grew up on Cape Cod, MA, so the ocean is home to me!

This card uses Night of Navy, Real Red, & Whisper White CS.  The DSP is from the Maritime pack. Appropriate, & I LOVE this paper!!!

The stamp sets used are The Open Sea & Something to Say
The Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine has been knotted to sort of copy the DSP behind it! It's not Real Red, but it's close enough!
Here are the up-close details!

Now get ready to hop! Click on the picture below to get to Jen's blog-the next blog in the hop!!  Then be sure to keep going all the way until you get back here! Please leave a fun comment! We love to hear from you!

So I hope you've enjoyed my first card in the Inspire, Create & Share monthly blog hop!!! HERE!

Happy Stampin'!!
