Ribbon Carousel #83 challenge {post1}

Hello, friends:}

**After 9am--please click HERE or scroll up/down for my Mama Elephant highlight post.
Have you played along with this month's Ribbon Carousel challenge yet??? The RCC is now doing monthly challenges with a huge prize at the end for one lucky player!!! The prize::: a ribbon carousel!!!!!! This month's theme/challenge--- Celebrate your Heritage/Country

I am not one to really make USA themed cards... I just don't send that type of card out. So I'm challenging myself to make cards that share my USA pride or appreciation for our troops... but it doesn't stop there! I want to also send them out! :)

So yesterday I shared this awesome card that I made for the Paper Smooches SPARKS July Cool Shades challenge! LOVE LOVE LOVE! Read more about it HERE.  
Last month... I shared this card using Mama Elephant June stamps. LOVE the simplicity! Read more about it HERE
This doesn't work for the RCC challenge though... totally forgot to add ribbon/thread/etc.! OH MY! Scratch this entry! 

So that leads me to my actual card for the RCC #83 challenge... I decided to create an invite for July 4th (so this was actually made a couple of weeks back!). I used some Simple Stories papers with several Paper Smooches stamps including Hang Ups, Alphadot, Alfresco, My Guy, Falling For You, Perpetual Bliss, Spiffy Scooters, and Green Acres. See???? I told you I used SEVERAL PS stamps! My goal for this card was to use several different items in my stash [I would say that the papers and alphas count for this extra challenge!]. 
So... AGAIN I failed to use ribbon! So I added some Whisker Graphics Lemon divine twine on the left... and NOW it's perfect for the RCC #83 challenge:) 
That's it for me today--but make sure you stop by the RCC blog for more details for this challenge and DT inspiration!!! And click HERE to link up your creation!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}
