Celebrate in red, blue and white


I'm sorry I've been MIA for a short while. But I am back now:) 

I hope everyone had a relaxing and fun long weekend. It's funny that I made a card for the 4th of July, but after-the-fact. LOL! Anyway, here it is: 

I've never made a 4th of July card before, but I love the colors on this card! I love the vellum jar, the white polka dots from Paper Smooches and the red on top of the blue:) I really didn't think I could pull it off. And guess what? This card was made in 9 min and 40 seconds. Not bad! I wanted to add a few more faux-stitching lines to the stars so that there would be 2-3 lines all the way to the center, but I ran out of time.  

Anyways, I'm entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp challenge, the Paper Smooches Designer Sketch challenge and into the 10 Minutes Craft Dash


Thanks for stopping by.
