Less is More 27

The 27th challenge at Less is More is to make a card using the colors of your country's flag. I'm from the USA, so the colors I had to work with were red, white, and blue.

I didn't want to make a traditional patriotic card, so I chose to use my new Hero Arts Joy Ride set. I've been wanting this set for a long time and I love every image in it. I wanted to make a masculine card that might be used for a birthday. I sponged a little color on the panel and distressed the edges with my fingernails.




Being summer here, we've been gone a lot so my posts are sporadic and I haven't been able to comment as much as I normally would. I hope to have some time this evening to look around at the other Less is More entries.


Supplies:
Paper: PTI enchanted evening, rustic white
Stamps: Hero Arts Joy Ride, PTI sentiment
Ink: VersaMagic red brick and ocean depth

How fun! I love how you have included the scooter - because it's taller, it works so well to highlight the sentiment.
