Patriotic Paper Sweeties

I was honored to both win the Paper Sweeties Challenge for May and be ask to guest design with my prize for the month of July. Since I don't own very many Paper Sweeties stamp sets (yet!), I had to get creative with what I have to match the current inspiration board! 
(Here's the inspiration board for this month)
I created my wreath using the Paper Sweeties Pretty Posies stamp set and Distress Inks from Tim Holtz. The pretty bow started out the color of Paper Sweeties Frosting Seam Binding, but I added a bit of Antique Linen Distress Ink to darken it.
Be sure to stop by the Paper Sweeties blog and link up to this months challenge for a chance to win  a $25 gift certificate to the Paper Sweeties store!
