There are 2 ways to do this challenge. Both use patriotic colors... that includes paper, ink, and embellishments. You may use the traditional colors or shades of those colors. For example: In the United States, you may use ruby red or another shade of red instead of real red and maybe a couple of shades of blue. You may add any neutrals.
Use patriotic colors to make a patriotic themed card but don't use traditional patriotic stamps. Example: Fourth of July card but don't use flags, Statue of Liberty, fireworks, etc.
Use patriotic colors and any images, but it can't be a patriotic card. Make a different themed card like Thinking of You, Get Well, Birthday, etc.
If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Great idea -- patriotic colors, but no patriotic stamps! I actually made a birthday card the other day for my grandson using red, white, and blue. Will have to come up with another one, I guess! Will get on this one after work. Thanks, Jen. Enjoy your summer!
If I understood correctly, stars are okay as long as you are doing option 2 and not doing a patriotic card. (Jen used stars on her 1st card example). Correct me if Im wrong!! Sounds like a fun challenge, hoping I have time to play today. Thanks Jen for the great challenge!
OK Jen!! Great challenge!! I usually clean the house on Fridays...but who wants to clean the house when I have two weeks worth of these challenges to do!!!??? Cleaning can wait cause I have an itch to stamp today!!!
Ack!!!! Now I'm reading above that star stamps are OUT -- sorry!!! Mine is done and loaded -- oh well!!!
Just clearing up something...
Option 2 can use stars or any other images since the theme is what's not going to be patriotic.... instead it will be birthday, thank you, or something else not patriotic related. Use any images for option 2
