Here is a tip for all cardmakers:
Look at your pattern paper stock and use it in different ways.  This red, white and blue pattern paper I used actually came form a DCWV Christmas Stack!  You would never know it is Christmas paper, but it is!  Always look for fresh ways to use your paper!

How about some Blog Candy? 
I am going to offer up some 6x6 Pattern cardstock and ribbon to you!
