Happy 4th of July to all of my American friends! A very special Thank You to all of those who have served, and are serving, to protect our freedom!
I hope you're enjoying the time off with family and friends. I don't have much planned for today. I'm just going to relax, and play with all of my new goodies, as much as I can. I wanted to participate in a few challenges I saw, and use one of the Design Seeds color combos (below) that goes well with this holiday week. Here is what I put together.
I'm still struggling with my photos. I think I may have to just break down and pay for a real light box. This way, my photos will be consistent. Either way, this card turned out exactly how I pictured it in my head. That's always a plus for me. That doesn't happen very often. lol I really wanted to use the new stuff that arrived in my Simon Says Stamp July Card Kit, and am glad that I was able to pull it off. I suppose this card could be use for several different occasions, not just 4th of July or birthday. I'll just keep it in my card stash, and use it when I need to.
I've combined the following challenges in my card today:
Color Q #196 - Real Red, More Mustard, Night of Navy, Crumb Cake & White (Hoping I'm close enough)
Stampin Royalty #183 - Anything Goes
Pals Paper Arts #162 - Pacific Point, Real Red & Crumb Cake (Hoping I got close enough, again)
I'm off to make more stuff, and eat some amazing food that we've prepared for today. Later, I suppose I'll leave the house, and go watch the fireworks with my mom somewhere. Maybe. :-)
Just a quick reminder, before I forget. Have you checked out the new challenge at House of Cards? I hope you will, and if you can, play along with us.
Enjoy your day!
