Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge - Red, White and Blue

 To my Fellow Albertans whose lives are affected by last week's flood, my thoughts and prayers go out to you! I can't imagine how you are dealing with this tragedy and I hope that you find that kindred spirit to keep you going in the months ahead. 
I'm back with another card for Loves Rubberstamps and this week's theme is Red, White and Blue! I started off using white metallic paper for my base which is 5"x 7" finished card size. I then used red metallic for the 2nd layer and another Anna Griffin red flower paper for the 3rd. I then used a blue and white metallic paper which I cut out both papers using a Spellbinders die called 'Timeless Rectangle'. I stamped the Poppies (twice) using the set from JustRite called 'Poppies Label 29' which you can find here in the store; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/category_307/JustRite-Papercraft.htm
onto shimmery white paper using black memento ink which you can find here in the store; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/category_302/Memento-Ink-Pads-from-Tsukineko.htm  I colored them using Prismacolor pencils and cut them out using scissors. I then laid one on top of each using pop up dots. I added some cream ruffle ribbon and laid on top some blue ribbon all by May Arts. I added a London charm which I found at Michael's which was tied on using Cherry Cobbler twine. I added a red hand made flower called 'Allegra Adelle' by Prima Marketing Inc as shown.
