The FS #169 is Eliotstamps/Michelle. She has a wonderful gallery of creations to choose from. I chose this card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...si=eliotstamps
I kept Michelle's layout and used a different image, ribbon, and paper. Michelle, I hope you enjoy your week as FS. Have fun!!!
Also, my card is for Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge #1 and that is to do a red, white, and blue. I used a Flourishes image from Mark's Finest Papers called Friendly Reminders. Give them a visit at http://marksfinestpapers.blogspot.co...nge-1-red.html You may win a prize.

Oh, Benzi, this is lovely!! What a great CASE for the FS and a super red/white/blue entry for the Speedy the Cat challenge. I was just thinking about red, white, and blue for a card recently and thinking it would be fun to use these colors and try to make it NOT seem patriotic. I may have to give this challenge a try--thanks for pointing it out!! Those star punchez look fabulous on the red background :) Nice work!

What a great job on 2 challenges Benzi!! I guess this means you weren't blown away by the tornadoes!! Okay, I am still wanting the blossom diecuts, so send them on over now, ya' hear? Ha, Ha, I beat you at using the MS ribbon bow punch so now everyone will think you copied me!! Okay, back to your card. Sorry I got sidetracked!! LOVE your color combo, of course, and your cute little birdie image, gorgeous paper and fun stars. Are they punched stars? You didn't do a tally PREZ!!!! You need to make sure you get credit for each of those there stars girlie!! You did a fantastic job - now, go out and help clean up that oil spill, will ya? I don't want it reaching near my mother!!!! Hugzi!
