OOPS! July Red White and Blue Challenge by Jean

I just discovered Jean's submission for the July Red, White and Blue Challenge. OOOPS! I am soooo sorry.  This is what Jean said:

Hi there,

I just stumbled upon your site, and thought it was just what I needed, since I have, uurrrmmm, well..... a considerable amount of stash, shall we say? I did a little Red, White and Blue Christmas card (attached). I used an old Basic Grey collection - Blitzen. While I used some bigger solid pieces from the collection for the background panels, I also used the front cover of the collection (the sheet that has little thumbnails of all the papers in the kit) for my paper piecing and the little rectangles on the side of the card. The patterns are scaled down perfectly. Not sure if I'm explaining that too well, LOL! My blog post with the card is:

Thanks for the inspiration!
