Patriotic decor

There are a couple of patriotic challenges going on right now (Our Daily Bread Designs, Simon Says Stamp Challenge). After I found the Simon Says Stamp Challenge, I discovered that they have a vintage challenge as well (Simon Says Stamp and Show) and the Challenge is "Anything Goes"! This piece fits both categories, so I am going to enter it there also! After debating whether or not I wanted to do a card, I decided that I needed some patriotic décor for my home. So I made this piece with a built in stand on the back. After I made it, I realized that I could use this décor not only for the Fourth of July, but also for Memorial Day, and Veteran's Day!


 
I inked the gingham ribbon with Antique Linen distress ink to tone down the red and give it a more vintage look.
 


I used chipboard for my base and attached a ribbon stopper at the bottom to keep it from sliding.



Linking this project up to the following challenges:
Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge
Simon Says Stamp Challenge
Simon Says Stamp and Show

Materials:

Authentique Glory
Our Daily Bread Designs sentiment-Time
Tim Holtz Distress ink-Chipped Saphire, Walnut Stain, and Antique Linen
Ribbon- Hobby Lobby and Jillibean Soup
